Cornerstone Pentecostal Church is converting the former Kia of Spokane showroom and dealership in Liberty Lake into its new church. The dealership, at 21326 E. Mission, was owned by Sydney and Arlene Kane, who had operated it until closing in January 2011.
The purchase price paid by the church was $1.9 million. Cornerstone Pentecostal is leaving its current church building at 12817 E. Broadway.
The church has roughly 300 members, said Pastor Rick Mayo. Mayo said the showroom is being transformed into a vestibule and the service shop is being converted to a 9,000-square-foot sanctuary.
Steve Ridenour worked on behalf of the previous owners. Clark Pacific of Spokane represented the church in the deal.
Mayo said the church has its current site for sale. It is listed for $750,000.
