CORNERSTONE CHURCHES

Cornerstone - a basis, a vital foundation

Wayland Baptist University was built upon the foundation of churches worker together to provide Christian higher education. Through their gifts the first buildings were constructed, the first scholarships were awarded, and the first salaries were paid. God continues to bless as Wayland fulfills its mission as an extension of the local church. Churches actively supporting this mission remain vital to the future of Wayland and generations of future students.
