I recently became part of the Baptist church family in my town. I've never been a member in a church before. My family never went to church. I was told today I would need to be be baptized. I am soooo nervous. This is all so new to me. An 8 yr old will be baptized on Easter & I was asked if I wanted to do it then too. Would that be taking away from that little girls' baptism? Please I need help! I have to let our Pastor know something this week. A big thanks ahead of time for any help yall can give me.

When your Baptized it means you join that Church, you become a member of that Church, also total immersion means you hold your nose and they dunk you under the water completely.
we believe in total immersion Baptism also and before we are baptized we must study the Bible so we have an understanding of what Dedication and Baptism means to God and what it truly should mean to us. Does your Church do this too?

Baptism is not something that you should rush into. I was Baptized in a Baptist church when I was 10. I remember feeling this is wrong. Not knowing then, that this what not MY spiritual path.I grew up to be a Pagan.
Religion, baptisms are a very serious, spiritual, personal and emotional decision. You just started attending this church, you should not feel pressure to be baptised.There are many who attend church and take their time to accept the Lord as their Savior and be baptised. Make sure this is something that you feel with all your heart, So you can enjoy the magnitude of the moment. Our church use to baptize one or several people on the same day. You wouldn't be taking anything away from this girl BTW. Total immersion is when the minster leans you back and immerses your entire body into the water. I wish you the best with your decision.
