Topic Tuesday: Baptism

I read this article on a parenting site the other day and it was about baptism.  Boy there are a lot of strong opinions out there!  I think each person should decide for themselves whether or not to be baptised but I understand why some religions believe that infants must be baptised.

I believe that baptism is the public declaration of our private decision to follow Christ.  I believe Jesus’s death on the cross and resurrection absolved me of my sins.

What do you believe?
