Baptism 101 Course
1. How old does someone need to be for baptism?
This is one of the questions that is most often asked to us, in relation to baptism.
As elders we recognize that there is no chapter and verse in the Bible that directly answers this question. Therefore, we understand that this is a matter of wisdom and something that we hold to lightly. We have settled on age 13 as a guideline for our own church family practices. We believe that at this point in an individuals life he is able to understand what is being affirmed in baptism and can participate with an appropriate level of understanding.
