  • A child can have their first christening around 6 months, maybe sooner.

  • "I think when they are old enough to understand what sin is or the difference between right and wrong so they know why they are asking for forgiveness. When they become saved is a good time to get baptized in my opinion"

    ^^This. Babies can be dedicated but baptism is 1~full immersion and 2~outward symbol of you dedication to turn from sin and live for Christ after being saved. It's a personal decision. Babies cannot do that.

  • when they are old enough to understand...you can't put a number on it. Some 18 year old may not get it. I was 14 and had taken Bible studies and know what it meant :)

  • I think when they are old enough to understand what sin is or the difference between right and wrong so they know why they are asking for forgiveness. When they become saved is a good time to get baptized in my opinion. I was baptized as a baby but also chose to be again last year at the age of 26 when I became saved.

  • I'm a Baptist, a child should not be baptized until they are saved.
