  • My church believes the age of accountability is eight years old and that a child any younger is incapable of sinning against God.

  • Catholics baptize infants and then when they get older and have more understanding etc. they go through confirmation which is where they state that they want to accept the Holy Spirit in their lives and continue on with the Faith.

  • The Bible says to repent and be baptized. Since a child knows nothing of sin or God, many protestant churches wait until the child chooses to be baptized.

  • A person maybe baptized only if they have accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior and are old enough to understand the symbolism of baptism. I think the youngest I have seen has been 6 years old.
