Our volunteers hope to work with you to make your day special.



As Baptists, we baptize only believers, so we do not perform christenings or infant baptisms. However, we do invite a parent or parents to enter into a covenant with the church to give their children to the Lord and to rear them in faith. To make arrangements for such a dedication in one of the worship services contact Pastor Eric at


When a person decides to receive Jesus as his or her Savior and commit his or her life to the Lordship of Christ, it is our privilege to baptize that believer into the Body of Christ, the church. Each year, First Baptist Cornelia holds a special baptism service on Easter Sunday.  It’s a high and holy experience.  We also hold baptism service through the year as well.  To begin a conversation about baptism, contact one of the pastors.

All SAINTS Sunday

Each year on the first Sunday of November we celebrate All Saints Sunday with many of the Global Church.  On this Sunday, we remember the members and friends by name who have passed away over the last year.  This is a holy and sacred experience.  If you would like to participate it this service, contact Pastor Eric Spivey at
