Joining Cornerstone

Like most Baptist churches Cornerstone invites people to join our church family, and there is three ways a person becomes of member of Cornerstone.

First, by profession of faith in Jesus Christ during one of our services, outreach events or private counseling with the pastor or another member of the church.

Second, by baptism by immersion having made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ but not having been baptized yet.

And the third way is by transfer of membership from another likeminded church, having made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ and having been baptized by immersion.


Why is church membership important?

Jesus is committed to the church, Acts 2:47 says, “… and the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved”.

The word “church” in the Bible is almost always a reference to the local church. When a person was saved in the early church era they were included in a local church.

Belonging to a local church as a member pleases God and indicates a Christ-like spirit. It demonstrates a Biblical world view.

Church membership is a commitment to Jesus and His body, a specific body of Christ-followers.

It promotes spiritual growth. Church membership helps us become more like Jesus. Personal spiritual growth grows best in a church family.

Ephesians 5:25 says, “… Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her”.
