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.

celafoe- I totally agree. Many Thanks
P.S. Please read my last comment in my Hub God's Kingdom now, and gine me your opinion. Many thanks
GRACE, I will get back to you on that in a few days,
Noreen-- just more of your "church false doctine" has nothing to do with baptism
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.
Interesting - Baptist is one of the few that is sometimes not recognized. Simply because many Baptist Churches, baptize in the name of Jesus and not "Father, Son and Holy Spirit." (Or so I've been told - don't have tons of info on topic).
Jesus said to baptize in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit. If JESUS said it, then that settle it. So, there is no such thing as a Baptist baptism or a catholic baptism. That kind of thinking is false doctrine garbage.
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.
Ericdierker, I like your comment. Only a very level-headed person can make such a comment. I've yet to come across a real life Christian talking like you. The first thing one pastor asked me when I attended a talk was: "Which church are you from?"
Hey Grace in us, I just got back from preaching and I asked my youth what is a requirement to be baptized? They delighted me. They as a group said: "to accept that you are not perfect and to love Christ". I danced a little jig and we laughed.
Eric- It sounds like you have a good bunch of kids there. And good to hear they love Christ. However, you never mentioned before that you know how to dance :-)
Dance? Maybe, but not reading the Word! We should do as the apostles did Matt 28:20 on Day of Pent when 1st church est regrd baptism! New Cov Jer31:33;Heb8:10;10:16,Promise Jn14:26, Came Acts 2:2, baptized n Jesus' Name afterwards! U can't deny!
BlossomSB- thank you for your answer. Many blessings.
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.
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.
Sounds like a proud church, or one that firmly believes in showing your faith/having people connected. It is unfortunate, but distortions always occur. No two churches are alike.
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
You don't need a membership to ATTEND. By "membership", I mean that a person has the right to vote in church decisions (remodeling, outreach programs, etc.)... Its' not required to worship with the church body.
fine but where do you find the? the modern "church" is not the new testament church. It is a copy of the defunct temple which God deserted when the veil was rent. God is not in your building or structure.
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
That's exactly what happens. For some churches, baptism is the requirement for you to join as an acceptance into their organization and acceptance of their doctrine.
Norine, Jesus Christ said to baptize in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. If Jesus said it, then that settles it. JESUS is the HEAD of the ECCLESIA whether you like it or not.
Norine, you are no longer welcomed to post comments on my Hub and/or question of mine. I will delete every thing to post from this point on.
God bless Deepes
JThomps42- I agree this is the process of baptism. I'm wondering why any denomination my feel their baptism is THEE true baptism. And if you not baptized by their clergy then is not a true baptism. Many thanks for your answer and Deep Minds. Blessing
