The Cornerstone Bible Baptist Church held its first service in October, 2000 in the rented facilities of the Ransomville Methodist Church located on Route 104.

The Lord has blessed us with our own building located in the village of Sanborn, near the much visited city of Niagara Falls.

A Short History about our Building.

Sanborn’s first church was actually an old wooden Methodist Church from Pekin that was moved to Sanborn in 1865.

Remodeled and renamed the Sanborn Union Hall, both the Methodists and the Baptists used this facility for services until their own churches were built.

In 1888 it was purchased by a Mennonite congregation for use as their church building. That building is now located on Pearl Street and is the American Legion Post 969.

The Methodist church at Sanborn was organized February, 8, 1868, with Rev. George Kittenger as the first pastor.

In 1870 Construction began on the Methodist Episcopal Church, at the corner of Buffalo and Tallman Streets.

Meetings were held in various places until 1873 when this handsome church edifice was finished at a cost of about $6,000.

The church building is an example of an old post and beam building with a wooden steeple.

The bell in the bell tower is the original.

The Baptists built their church in 1879.
