I was born into a active Christian family, my father and mother were active members of our church and my brothers and me loved it as well. When I was 6 years old I begged my parents to allow me to be baptized. My parents wanted me to be sure that I understood the faith and that I was understanding in my actions to become a baptized member. I told them I was and I even had a meeting/lunch date with my pastor (which included a happy meal :D) I was allowed to be baptized after answering all of my pastor’s questions. I told my parents it had to be on Easter, so on April 16, 1995 I was baptized.
That following August my family and I moved to a new town and started attending a new church which was recommended to us by a member of our previous church. We went as a family for 2 years and then my fathers job prevented him from going and my Mom was not comfortable at that church with out him. I however asked to remain attending and my parents allowed me. I went to church on my own from age 8 to age 16. I had to stop going once I started a job where my boss refused to honor giving church goers Sundays off.
Recently I was promoted at my job and have weekends off. I have started to go back to my church and am pleased to be reunited with the Lord. (Yes I did still remain a Christian while not attending church, but it feels more amazing when I am at a church due to my childhood)
My question is this, since I was Baptized at such a young age I feel like maybe I didn’t understand the faith as much as I should have before I was baptized. What are some thoughts on re-baptism? I know that a public announcement of faith is usually enough, however, I feel like a second baptism will feel more appropriate for me, and I can’t shake the feeling that I want to do it again.
Any help is much appreciated, please no hate.
