History




In April of 1999, the Lord spoke to Pastor David Ransom, Sr., *I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house,* Isaiah 42:6-7.
 
With much prayer and fasting, Pastor Ransom accepted the call from God to become a pastor in his hometown of Fairfield, Texas. A few months later he was instructed by God with the assignment to go and relay the foundation; not that the foundation has been destroyed, but to relay it in the hearts of men.
 
On Sunday, September 5, 1999, Cornerstone Full Gospel Church of Fairfield, Inc. was established in his parents* living room. With only eight members, Pastor Ransom, age 23, delivered the word of God to the congregation as if he was preaching to millions of people. Within three years, the church moved into a rent house because the membership had grown. Before long, the church would move for a second time into a donated church building that was 100 plus years old. As the congregation continued to grow, it became necessary for Cornerstone to make plans to build a larger facility. On Sunday, November 4, 2012, the doors of the New Cornerstone Full Gospel Church of Fairfield, Inc. were opened!!!
 
God has blessed us with all we could ever ask or think. Since 1999, this favor has allowed us to expand not only in membership, but also in spirituality. *The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad,* Psalm 126:3.
