This past Sunday, Pastor David mentioned that the Elders had spent several months determining our church's stance in response to issues relating to baptism because of common questions asked by folks walking through our church membership process and those seeking to be baptized. Common questions they addressed include: Should those who were baptized as infants be re-baptized as adults? Is baptism necessary for church membership? Should we recommend that children be a particular age before being baptized?
