  • Yes, some baptize babies and some wait until the person is older and choses for him or herself.

  • yes--but the time of their baptism really depends on the church that they go too--some baptize as babies--and some baptized as adults when you finally accept christ in your life

  • Yes. For most not a birth but after salvation.

  • yes, but we wait till we can make the decision to follow God for ourselves. Then once we say "i will follow christ, i want to show everyone else this... " then you are baptised. that is how my church has done it.

  • Protestants are baptized. Most Protestant denominations do infant baptisms - Lutherans, Presbyterians, Methodists, Episcopalians, Anglicans. (Catholics and Orthodox do as well.) It's mainily Baptists and Pentecostal that do not baptize infants (Also Amish, Latter-Day Saints, Jehovah's Witnesses don't)
