Bill Baxter, Academic Dean, Cornerstone Bible Institute

Bill was born and raised in inner-city Baltimore, MD. He was born the second time at age 26 on December 3, 1967, while in the US Navy. God, His Word, and the local church became priorities in Bill’s life, and the world was recognized for what it is. Bill’s education included ten years in the US Navy, three years at Sacramento Bible Institute, eighteen years in missions in South Africa involved in church planting, and fourteen years as pastor of his home church, Vallejo Bible Church, Vallejo, CA.

In 2010, the Lord led Bill and Joy to move to SD to have a part in equipping the next generation of workers for Jesus Christ. “What a privilege it is to know Him and to serve Him,” Bill affirms. Bill teaches theology courses at Cornerstone, along with Church History, Church Planting, and Acts.

Bill Baxter had been serving as an Advisory Elder for our church since 2002 until he moved to SD in 2010. Please continue to pray for Bill and his wife Joy for their health, stamina, and fruitfulness in their ministry to students.
