I am a lifelong Baptist feeling drawn to the Catholic Church. (See other posts). When I was about 9 years old I accepted Jesus as my saviour and was baptised. When I got to college I drifted away from the Lord and lived in sin for a long time. 12 years ago at the age of 32 I rededicated my life to God and think that I may have been truly saved at that time.
Since Catholics believe that baptism is required for salvation, would the Church consider my baptism as a 9 year old valid?
If you were baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and water was used, it is most likely valid!!!
