If you have recently professed faith in Christ and/or have not yet been baptized, we want to extend the invitation for you to be baptized. To sign up, fill out the baptism form below and a Downtown Cornerstone leader will follow up with you. If you’d like to learn more about baptism you can listen to Pastor Adam’s “What is Baptism?” sermon.

WHY SHOULD CHRISTIANS BE BAPTIZED?

Jesus commanded that all Christians be baptized (Mat 28:19).
When we repent of our sin, trust in Jesus Christ for our salvation, we should be baptized (Acts 2:41).

WHO SHOULD BE BAPTIZED?

Every baptism in the New Testament is preceded by repentance of sin and faith in Jesus (Acts 22:16). In other words, only Christians who have repented of sin and have trusted in Jesus should be baptized. Therefore, all non-Christians and children too young to demonstrate repentance and articulate faith should be excluded.

MAY I BE BAPTIZED IF I HAVE PREVIOUSLY BEEN BAPTIZED?

Once you are baptized as a follower of Christ there is no need to be baptized again (Acts 19:1-5). Additionally, although Downtown Cornerstone does not require those who were baptized as children/infants to be baptized as believing adults, we highly encourage every Christian to examine the scriptures teaching on baptism, and come to a personal biblical conviction of where they land.

HOW DO I BEGIN THE PROCESS TOWARD BAPTISM?

If you would like to be included in the next round of baptisms within our church, taking a baptism class or meeting with a pastor is required. Our next Baptism Class is scheduled for Sunday, March 4th between gatherings. To begin that process or to register for the next baptism class, please complete the form below.

Note: If you are a parent filling out this form for your child, please participate by asking them the below questions, writing their answers exactly as they answer.

WHEN CAN I GET BAPTIZED?

We plan to celebrate baptisms on Sunday, December 3, 2017 during Advent and Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018 at the church building.

If you have any further questions you may contact us at info@downtowncornerstone.org.
