Question Multiple Baptisms

Is it wrong to get baptized more than once?

I've heard that we should only be baptized once to it's ok to be baptized multiple times.


I'd like to hear both sides of the argument if anyone is knowledgable in this area.

Thank's!

Michie

Well I can't tell you if it is right or wrong but I have been baptized more than once.

 I was baptized in the name of the Father Son and Holy Ghost.

I also got baptized in the name of Jesus and once again cause I thought I better.

I was really at the time not even a little wise on Jesus.

I had been saved but was scared I might not do what I was supposed to do.

 I based so much at the time on works and technicalities.

 I now take each day and know I am saved and I will never be good enough so I need not try.

 I am like filthy rags but thats fine with me.

 I can relax in Jesus.  Evee

caley will become famous soon enough
I have known people that have "fallen away from God" and been rebaptized after they come back, and it has always bothered me. The idea to me is that rebaptism is essentially denying your first baptism, and as good as claiming that one does not trust God to come into your life the first time.

There is one baptism. One can renew one's baptismal vows but cannot be baptized again. It is kind of like marriage.

My grandmother was baptized twice. Once forward and once backward. Some kind of denominational thing that I, quite frankly, don't understand. In order to join the church my grandfather belonged to she had to be baptised in the manner they did it. Don't ask me to explain why.

As an interesting bit of trivia I happen to know that certain denominations will actually dunk the person more than once. Grace Bretheren for example. I don't see anything necessarily wrong with this but I don't really understand it either.

The only reason that I can think of to be baptised again is if the first baptism was not genuine. Meaning, you were baptised but had not truly accepted Christ in your heart. Then, once true conversion had taken place, you desired to be baptised again. I would argue against any doctrine that demanded that someone be baptised more than once for any reason other than the example I gave.
