In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus delivers His Great Commission to the church, stating: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you."
Cornerstone is committed to seeing this mission of disciple-making fulfilled in the local church, and as Mattthew 28:19-20 indicates, the first step of this process is represented with baptism. Why would Jesus include this symbolic act as the very first step discipleship? What does baptism mean? What does it accomplish? What are the baptized doing or declaring when they are baptized?
The following messages, delievered during Cornerstone's baptism services, help answer these questions and more by explaining the meaning and significance of this event in the believer's life.
