The Church

The Pannell Family moved to Sioux Falls in 2021 with the intention of planting an independent baptist church on the western side of Sioux Falls. Bible study meetings began in November in the Keuhn Community center. Now that we have grown and have a consistent meeting time and crowd, it's time for a consistent place of our own!

We are currently renovating the building at 220 S Main Ave in Tea and hope to have it completed by spring time. The new building will enable us to have Sunday services in addition to our Thursday midweek Bible study.

Please join us for our Grand Opening Services on Sunday may 8th, 2022. Sunday school 10am

Morning Service 11am

Afternoon Service 2pm

How you might have heard about us...

Mail-out Invitations

In January 2022, we mailed out personal invitations for our Bible Study to the homes in our surrounding area. If you received one, be sure to check our Facebook page in case our location has changed.

Personal Invite

Our church members hand out personal invitations to visit our church services. If one of us had handed you an invitation, it is genuine and sincere; we would love to see you at church!

Door Hanger

It is very important to us to get the Gospel into homes in our area. We do this by placing small bags on door knobs that contain scripture, an invitation, and event flyers. If you have any questions about what you received, please get in touch.

The Pastor
Brother Scott Pannell

Brother Scott Pannell was born in metro Atlanta, and lived in that area most of his life. He was saved around the age of 9. He married his wife, Kim in 2010. They have 5 children.

Scott answered the Lord's call on his life, both to preach and to participate in world evangelism in 2015. Shortly after that, God called him to be a church planting missionary in the Upper Midwest of the United States. After much prayer, fasting, and seeking the Lord, Scott has a vision to reach the small towns across South Dakota, and every state that borders it. In 2021, Scott and his family moved to Sioux Falls and began a Bible Study. That Bible study has now grown to a small congregation and is moving into a more stable location in Tea, South Dakota. With the Lord's help, Cornerstone Baptist Church hopes to see many souls saved, young men answer the call to preach, families restored, and laborers trained to be sent out to the surrounding areas.

Mark 1:38 

"And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also; for therefore came I forth"
