The meeting house is located at 933 N Howard Street, Union City, Indiana. Please contact us at (765) 964-3119 for directions and service times.

Cornerstone Historic Baptist Church was planted in Union City, Indiana in 1985. After a great deal of prayer, a number of families along with the church’s first pastor, Lloyd Shepherd, saw the need for a Bible-believing church in Union City. The first meeting was held in a store front. It was not long before the Lord provided a new meeting place for the church and services were moved to the current location at 933 North Howard Street. Pastor Lloyd Shepherd guided God’s people until December 2008, when Pastor Keith Hoover answered the call to the pastorate. He, along with his wife Racheal and their children, relocated from Payson First Baptist Church, Payson, Arizona, where he led the youth and participated in street evangelism. It was not long before Pastor Lloyd Shepherd passed away, having served the Lord faithfully with Cornerstone Historic Baptist Church from 1985 to 2009.

Pastor Keith Hoover faithfully served Jesus Christ and the church until October 2016, when he stepped down after accepting the call to pastor Bible Believers Historic Baptist Church in Mesick, Michigan.

Pastor Jason Burton, ordained to the gospel ministry in 2008 by First Baptist Church of Payson, AZ, and a teacher at Cornerstone since 2011, responded to his call to the pastorate with his first Sunday being October 30, 2016. Pastor Jason has been married to his wife Amy since 1998 and they have six children.

The meeting house has undergone a number of changes, but the basic premise is the same as it always has been…preaching the Word of God, teaching the doctrines of the Faith, and singing hymns, psalms and spiritual songs that teach as well as edify. We strive to do all things in the church to the glory of God through Christ our Saviour.

We look forward to meeting you!

Your Servant in Christ,

Pastor Jason Burton

  1. Pastor Burton. Good website; as this was my first visit! I could easily detect your personality coming through the text throughout each section. I think the “Thank You for visiting” section has to be updated with you as pastor. No big deal, but it will help in being consistent. Bro. Mike A.
