I was baptized in a Southern Baptist church that has since disappeared. I am converting this Easter and need to take a baptismal certificate. A. Our church didnt keep certificate records like the Catholic church does. B. The church sold and disappeared probably 18 years or so ago.
Now my priest has said if I am sure I was baptized and baptized in the trinity formula I can bring in a statement from my mother that she witnessed my baptism. Baptist do use the trinity formula but this was 20-25 years ago that I was baptized. I am not even sure of the date- I am guessing between 1980-1984’ish. The RCIA director said I needed 2 witnesses and it needed to be notarized, but I only have my mom to say she witnessed it.
Would it be best to just ask for a conditional baptism? or not since there is only one baptism?:shrug:
