To immerse or not to immerse? That is the question.

    We allow non-baptized believers to come to the Lord's Table when a) they are seeking baptism but have providentially been hindered from having it done yet (e.g., the Lord's Table is celebrated March 3 but the church is having their next baptismal service March 17) and b) the participant believes that he or she has been baptized Biblically (e.g., the participant is a Presbyterian). And of course, there are a number of qualifications and caveats that could be made that would combat various objections to our practices, especially regarding my second allowance listed, but I don't think that's necessary for me to outline.

    Andrew, our practice is similar.

    The only Reformed Baptist Church that I worship in annually has a Pastor who was baptised as an infant.

    That's not too unusual. I was baptized as an infant (Roman Catholic). After my conversion I received believers baptism.

    The Pastor I speak of, was not re-baptised in the mode you speak of.

    I believe it is very uncommon.
