Our History

Cornerstone Baptist Church began just over 20 years ago as Victory Baptist Church. Victory Baptist Church was planted in October of 2000 by Trevor Waybright. The church started as a fundamental Baptist church, but as Trevor studied Scripture, he and the church transitioned to a more conservative Baptist theology. Trevor and his family faithfully served the church in Hermiston, and he pointed people to Jesus. 

After 12 years of faithfully worshipping in a very small building, Victory Baptist had grown to the point that the church was bursting out of the space. Victory Baptist moved into a new location on the corner of Main Street and 2nd Ave in downtown Hermiston. From there, it has grown and flourished in downtown. 

When Trevor and his family moved to a new location in 2014, Dax Bryant was brought in to lead the church for the next 6 years. He gave the this church an even more solid footing in an understanding of theology and doctrine. When Dax moved to Texas in 2021, Nick Coleman took the reins as the senior pastor.

 In January of 2023 Victory Baptist Church's name was changed to Cornerstone Baptist Church. 

Cornerstone is an independent, Bible-believing church. We do not belong to a denomination, however we voluntarily recognize and cooperate with an association of churches affiliated with Church Venture Northwest.
