Why do christians believe true baptism can only be conducted within one own denomination?


I have been told before that my water baptism would not be accepted by another person's denomination. I have discovered that a number of people who have changed their denomination are required to or go through a second and even a third water baptism by the clergy in their new denomination. I do not belong to any denomination and I have been water baptised only once.

    I concur. I was raised and baptized as a member of the Baptist Church. When I converted to Catholicism, my Baptist Baptism was accepted without question.

    Eric once again thank you. I believe that there is a strong sense amoung christians that baptism is a sign of membership within a denomination.The point is, baptism does not have a denomination. Blessing.

    lburmaster- Allow me to clarify. I was baptized once. But I know of people who have been in two or even three different denomination and where baptized in each. Why would a denomination not accept the fact the person was already baptized. Thank you.

    Rev. Akins- I should clarify something. My baptism came up in a conversation with a friend off mine. He only mentioned that his church would not accept my baptism if I were in his church. I was not planning to join his church. Thanks for your answer.

    yankeeintexas- I agree that many churches out there have doctrine that are not biblical. Any yes, baptissm is an act of faith. That is why I have only been baptized once and it will remain only once. Many thanks and God bless.

    but your is a church of man if you have a membership for YOUR church so it doesnt matter what you do. There is only one membership and that is by being born again into Christ not a church of man. the commission is bring them to CHrist not your chu

    Deep Minds- WE are baptized in the name of the Father , Son and Holy Spirit. With that said, I don't understand where these different denomination get the idea that they provide true baptism. It's as if one's baptized into their Church. Many thanks
