    The Times Have Changed...

    I was baptised when I was twelve years old and a firm believer in Christ. At the time, it what I considered to be my proudest moment. I devoted my entire life to the church. It was not until later that I realized that I had been living a lie. The gospel I had been spreading was...

    Me Too...

    I was baptized quite late for a Roman Catholic, at age 11; however, it was an amazing day. It was a private baptism with just me and my brother (who was also baptized,) the deacon and my parents, and my sponsor. Sometimes I wish I could go back to that day to experience it well...

    Baptized...oh What a Feeling

    I use to spend my summers down south in a little town in North Carolina. As the years went by, I really enjoyed by time down there. As a young adult, I continued to go back to visit family and summer friends. I had always attended church down there when I visited. My family down...

    In The Cold, Deep River

    I was baptized in a little church that I grew up in and if you are baptized in that church you are given the option of being baptized in the baptismal or in the river.  Being the traditionalist that I am I of course, chose the river.  Literally like they did it like...

    When I Was 13...

     I regret getting baptized so young, I don't think I fully understood it all. When I went under, I wasn't thinking of God or Jesus, I was thinking how cold the water was. If I had done it this year I would have felt amazing even if the water was cold.  =/

    Yes I Was!

    Being baptized was an outward sign of the inward change in my life. That change was my giving my life to Christ and accepting him as my personal savior. That was in '73 and now i serve hi in a small congregation as their preacher. Praise the Lord!

    Age 13

    I was 13 when I got baptized. (Baptists believe that baptism should be done of your own free will, so it's uncommon for parents to have their newborns baptized.) However, I was still so young... I chose to do the baptism because all of my peers at church were doing it. It meant...

    Baptized As a Christian

    ...when I was a few months old, as the habit is. Now, I'm an Atheist with Agnostic leanings. With all the "gods" people believe in and all the possible, more logical explanations, it just seems so random to believe in a religion. Especially one that follows a "...

    What A Friend We have in Jesus: (John 15:9-17,

    Acts 8:38, Romans 6:1-14). I read this note from jrmitch85 and was inspired: "Both Philip and the eunuch went into the water. A symbol showing that we do not enter into this journey of faith alone, but rather we do this in community, even if that community is as small as two...

    Diy Baptism

    Of four brothers ( me being the 3rd) I was the only one never baptised, which seemed more coincidental than anything of significance. I was fortunate enough to be invited by a friends family to stay with them in wales. After A hike up the local hillls we went for a swim in the...

    In a River

    And I highly recomend it... Well, I like the immersion in the river, but to each their own. The river I got baptised in was badly polluted and smelled bad... maybe the sin from all those baptised there.... What is that country song? Pray for the fish?

    When I Was Young

    The majority of my family is catholic and thought to was necessary to get me baptized when i was a baby. Because Jesus will send a baby to hell? It doesn't make sense to me. Actually religion in general doesn't make senses to me. I'm more spiritual than religious.

    Maybe Try Some Spray Glue?!

    Forgive me if you find this irreverent but I'm not making fun of a beautiful, Biblically founded demonstration of one's faith but merely a wardrobe malfunction that occurred durring the ceremony. It was in a big Baptist church and a baptism service was, as the name implies, a...

    Not Like The Picture.

    I was baptised in the Catholic faith, so they sprinkled water on my head, rather than submerging me.
