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.
