Believers' Baptism by Total Immersion: As our name suggests, Baptists practice the baptism of believers. The New Testament teaches that baptism is for those who have come to a personal faith in Jesus Christ. For this reason we practice Believers' Baptism - that is baptism of those who profess a real faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as their own personal Saviour. And consequently we only baptise those old enough to have a real understanding of the Christian faith - and what Christian commitment means. We baptise by total immersion because we are following the example of Jesus and the early church which baptised in this way.
