A few weeks ago I made a thread asking if could be re-baptized in the Church to which I have already been received. I am still have massive doubts and sever anxiety about the validity of my baptism.
I was baptized in a Baptist church. They baptized me in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and I was dunked under the water.
I saw this in the Catholic encyclopedia:
“the Baptists use the rite only for adults, and the efficacy of their baptism has been called in question owing to the separation of the matter and the form”
Now, I don’t remember if he said the words just before dunking me or during it but I am assuming because it was Baptist it was right before… This is a custom in most Baptist and Evangelical churches it seems…
I am so anxious. I really don’t feel Christian I don’t feel right with God I am having anxiety and I just want some kind of affirmations official affirmation that my bapitsm was valid but I can’t seem to find that… Please help.
