Who We Are

June 27, 1937, a group of believers began meeting in a tent, which was located at the corner of Division and Second streets, in Northfield. The group became formally organized as the Northfield Alliance Church of the Christian and Missionary Alliance on January 16, 1942. Following this, they built a basement structure, located at 105 North Water Street. Upon further growth another building was built on the corner of Division and Woodley.
The church continued to grow in numbers and ground was broken for the current church site on September 28, 1975. On July 6, 2005, the church changed its name to Cornerstone Alliance Church of the Christian Missionary Alliance. 

Many people have experienced, fellowship, hospitality, discipleship, teaching, and opportunities to serve over the years at Northfield/Cornerstone Alliance church. Through the ebb and flow of time, and as people have come and gone, Cornerstone's mission has remained the same; to make disciples who connect with God, connect with others, connect in service, and to connect the lost to Jesus. 


Our Faith and Our Mission


Cornerstone Alliance Church is affiliated with The Christian Missionary Alliance.

Who is the C&MA?

The Alliance was birthed in 1881 when Pastor A. B. Simpson organized a small group of believers devoted to experiencing Jesus in His fullness and making Him known to New York City’s marginalized dock workers.

Today, we continue to carry out our All of Jesus for All the World vision by caring for suffering and overlooked people through 2,000 U.S. churches and more than 700 international workers serving in 70 countries.

What The Alliance believes is foundational in its teachings about God and how He relates to us and how we relate to Him. Based on His written Word, the Bible, we are compelled to serve God and the people of His world. We live and die by these words and believe they bring the only life worth living—one wholly committed to the King Jesus.
