Frequently Asked Question
What age should a young person be baptized?
The Bible teaches that little children are without sin and therefore
acceptable to God as they are (See Matthew 19:14). As the child grows it
comes to a time when it knows the difference between right and wrong. All
mature, responsible people sin (See Rom. 3:23). Sin separates us from God
and causes us to be lost. Baptism is for the purpose of washing away sins
(See Acts 22:16). If a person is guilty of sin, he needs to believe (John
3:16), repent (Acts 17:30-31), and be baptized for the remission of sins
(Acts 2:38). Each person must make this decision for himself.
