Believers’ Baptism FAQ
“Believer’s baptism” is the practice of publicity identifying with Christ as the individual’s Savior and Lord after the time of conversion. In the New Testament, converts were always baptized soon after conversion to Christ.
Infant baptism is the practice held by the Roman Catholic, Lutheran and Episcopal churches whereby an infant is considered to be brought into the Body of Christ (regenerated) by the “sacrament” of baptism. After the age of accountability, the child must the CONFIRM his or her faith (and be confirmed by the church). Note: Bible-believing (evangelical) Presbyterians and Congregationalists practice a different form of infant baptism, which is derived from “covenant theology”, and which they feel is the New Testament rite of circumcision (the identifying of the males of the nation with the national citizenship of God’s chosen people).
