If you would like to be baptized, please complete this inquiry form by January 1, 2024 and one of our pastors will connect with you.
At Cornerstone, we practice believers baptism (rather than infant baptism). We have a special Child Dedication service for families to dedicate their child(ren) and express their commitment to raising them in the faith. Visit our Child Dedication page for more information.
Why should you get baptized?
The main reason is Jesus commanded his followers in Matthew 28:19-20 “Go and Make disciples of all nations baptizing them…”
Plus, when you get baptized:
- It publicly tells others that you’re a follower of Jesus. Think of it like the ‘wedding ring’ of Christian life that expresses your commitment to Jesus Christ
- It typically follows a personal choice to believe in Jesus as your Saviour and Master. This New Testament practice of baptism is summed up in Acts 2:41 “Those who believed… were baptized…”
- It provides a picture of ‘dying’ to our old life and ‘rising’ to live a new life in Jesus, a symbol of Jesus dying and rising again. This image is talked about in Colossians 2:12 “For you were buried with Christ when you were baptized. And with Him you were raised to a new life…”
Here are some of the reasons you might want to be baptized:
- You’re a follower of Jesus who has never been baptized.
- You were baptized as a baby, but wish to reaffirm those baptismal vows as an adult who has made a personal choice to follow Jesus.
If you’d like a better understanding of what baptism is all about, please study and reflect on our Baptism Guide. After you’ve reviewed the guide, and would like to be baptized or learn more about baptism, please complete the Baptism Inquiry form below.
