Is being saved/born again really emphasized in your churches? Obviously it is with Evangelical/Baptist/Fundamentalist churches. Doesn't seem to be a term used at all with Catholics. Just wondering if these denominations stress being "saved" as a requirement for heaven or just being a good person who tries to live according to Christian principles.Answer Question

I am a lifelong Methodist.I teach confirmation classes and am on our children-youth-college boards.In the Methodist church infant baptism is still the most predominant form of baptism.Younger children receive no extra instruction.Children around 9 and up that do not wish to wait for confirmation class to become baptized will meet with a minister several times to get some instruction.After confirmation class which is 6th grade for us teens will attend classes for about a semester and normally have a group baptism in the very late spring.Adults attend classes that can be joined anytime in the year ;the adults attend till they have had complete instruction and can choose to be baptized anytime after that.The Methodist church believes in only one baptism.Someone may repent but they are not baptized again.It recognizes baptism from any church that believes in the Holy Trinity.
