Pastor Steven Freede
Cornerstone Independent Church Ministry
Thank You for your patience.
Our pastor has been in the field diligently working for the well being and provisions for others.
During this time he has dedicated himself to study and prayer that God will bring us through this pestilence and this ministry will rise and shine the truth of the Gospel for all to come to know.
New sermons will be posted soon. In the meanwhile enjoy our sermon Archive.
Cornerstone Independent Church Ministry
Thank You for remaining and joining us over the last several months. This has been a most trying time for many if not most people throughout the world.
Our pastor has been busy working to help provide for those he has been called to care for.
Sometimes this requires that he be called away from his desk and sermon writing but God has blessed him and his family with the strength to work and grow in the power of faith and obedience to the living Word of God.
Gardens and field crops have been planted and even in adverse weather conditions they are growing abundantly. Remodeling and updating of the home the pastor and his family will be moving to soon has been progressing well. God has provided the necessary means for every repair as it has been needed. When you put your heart into helping others God will always be there to provide in that work.
Please enjoy our newly edited Sermon Series from Romans. Our pastor preached this series starting in 2012.
The Gospels in Harmony Series will continue when God calls the pastor back in from the field.
Please join us for our Fridays sermons as we continue to repost Pastor Freede's previous Sermon series. Because we are studying the education of the disciples during Jesus' ministry here with us, Pastor Freede asked that his Ephesians Sermon Series be reposted next.
Please feel free to pass these sermons and our web address to all you can. These Sermons are free and at this time when many are asked not to join because of the risk of spreading deadly viruses you can still join with people throughout the world to study Gods Word and pray in unity.
God Bless you in all you do in His Service,
Pastor Steven Freede

Thank You for your prayers for this ministry throughout this past year. Fellowship Gardens was a great success, with much produce being raised and preserved for families in need.

Board Meeting Announcements
At our annual board meeting of church, there was much praise and worship for all the Lord has done through this website. Readers continue to grow from all over the world. Visitor and viewer attendance continues to multiply as this site is spread by word of mouth just as the Gospel is to be spread. We do not advertise this website because we continue to believe it is faithful followers of Jesus Christ who will pass it on to others as the Lord works through them.
Many thanks for all of your prayers for our pastor and this ministery.
We are looking forward to another year of growth in service by the hand of the Lord.
