    Late and Early

    Right, so I was born in December and baptized in April, which must mean I was around 4 months old when I was baptized. Not that old then. My sister is 6 at the moment, still yet to be baptized, my Mum's memory can be appalling at times if she still hasn't remembered!

    Twice

    I was raised in church as a Southern Baptist.  When I was 14 I decided it was time to turn my life completely over to the Lord.  When I told my parents I wanted to be baptized I remember the pastor would come to the house once a week. He came to talk to me and make sure...

    Older Baptism

    I got baptized the same time I got confirmed. My parents thought it would be best if I could make the decision on my own rather than to have the baptism forced on me when I'm a child.

    I Still Wonder

    what exactly is this ritual supposed to do? It certianly did nothing to lead me to the holy spirit, or it to I. It didn't tie me to the church in any way. It didn't help convince me of anything. What was the point? I was baptized Anglican and now I'm closer to pagan. no, not...

    I Was In Sixth Grade

    I was raised in a Conservative Baptist family (my dad is a pastor) so no baby baptism for me. I was pretty into believing in God and Jesus back in the day, so when I was 12(ish) I decided it was a good time to get baptized (everyone else was doing it), so I did. It wasn't...

    I was baptized when I was 13 in to the LDS church also known as the Mormon church. It took me a long time to realize the importance of what I had done and it took just as long to realize how blessed I am to be a member of this church.

    3 Times

    One as a baby. Once in the Baptist Church. Ugh. And once in the Pentacostal Church. I'm sure the first one was great. Who knows what I was thinking. The last one was awesome. People were seeing visions, the church was off the hook that day.

    When I Was a Baby.

    My family is catholic, so was my sister and cousin. I don't think it does a thing! I am not sure why people do it, they think they are "supposed to" or the church rejects you if you don't do it.

    Wonderful Sacrament

    I was baptized at age 8, Feb 14th 1993 in a Baptist church. Immersion. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I am now converting to Catholicism. But a baptism is valid.

    I remember feeling very disappointed because I thought I was supposed to feel something, but I felt nothing.  I almost wanted to ask the preacher to do it again because it didn't work the first time.
