  • I don't think white is 'required', but then again I'm the type of person who believes that God doesn't care what you wear, but more of the type of person you are.

  • I would ask the person who is going to be baptizing you for a wardrobe idea, but I really think anything is fine :) Congratulations btw :)

  • When I was baptised it was in a river at our church's annual picnic I had on shorts and a tshirt...nothing special at all...what does it matter what you wear? God sure doesn't care!!!!!

  • White is traditional, but I don't think it's required.
