    Catholicism IS a denomination of Christianity, so this is like asking for the difference between a flower and a tulip.

    So which other sect of Christianity do you mean? Anglicans? Protestants? Lutherans? Seventh Day Adventists? Methodists? Episcopalians? Quakers? Jehovah’s Witnesses? Mormons? Baptists? Presbyterians? Orthodox? Somebody else? Some them do baptisms, some of them don’t. And the ones that do, don’t necessarily do them the same way as others might. For example, one difference between how Baptists do baptisms in contrast to how Catholics do baptisms, is that Catholics baptize at infancy (unless they’re getting a convert) whereas Baptists don’t perform a baptism until the participant is old enough to know what’s going on. Some sects do full body immersion, some sects just sprinkle the water, etc.

    1) Catholics are Christians (the first infact)
    2) Protestants usually do full submersion baptism

    Umm Christian?
    Very very vague.

    I know Baptists wear a white gown and go to the river or use a pool.
    Godparents not necessarily required.

    The Bible only describes people being baptized AFTER they have professed faith in Christ and identified with Him. The professing Christian is baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

    Infant baptism is not described in the Bible. It began because well-intentioned parents who didn’t know the Bible (not many did in the first centuries) wanted to baptize their baby in case the baby died shortly after birth (which was much more common then).

  • Karenita says:

    Catholics are Christian. as for differences: some Protestant and i use the term loosely, Baptize in the name of Jesus while others such as us Catholics Baptize in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit as Jesus taught us to do.

  • Irishgirl says:

    Catholis are Christian – but Christians practice two types of baptism. Most Christians (Catholics and Protestants) say everyone, an infant, child, teen or adult can (and should) be baptized. Like in the bible where it talks about entire households/families being baptized (Acts 16:15, Acts 16:33, 1 Cor. 1:16), A minority of Christians (generally Baptists or Baptist off shoots) believe in a “Believers Baptism” which limits baptism to only those who can profess a belief in Jesus Christ.

    The actual ceremony can be a little different too. The usual way is by pouring water over someone’s head and saying “I baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit”. There are some Christians (again a minority) who insist that baptism has to be a full immersion where the person goes under the water. Now Catholics (and probably some Protestants) can do a full immersion baptism, but it’s not required like some claim that it is

  • LindaLou says:

    If there is a difference, in some Christian Faiths it is a baptism by immersion instead of sprinkling like Christ was immersed (fully under the water) and we are to follow His example AND Not all Christian Faiths believe in infant baptism.

  • Topheh says:

    Well, Catholics view baptism as an important part of salvation, while many (but not all) Protestants think that it is just a symbol. Catholics typically baptize children and infants, while some Protestants demand that you wait until you are older.

    @CT. Well, this isn’t the place to get into the whys and hows, but you touch on an important point. The Bible doesn’t talk about what to do with children… because at the time that Paul was writing and the Acts were going on, there were no second-generation Christians… EVERYONE was a convert. A document in which none of the people of the class you are interested in learning about (2nd generation Christians) are mentioned or even present makes it rather difficult to ascertain what to do with those people.

  • God is the only Truth says:

    We are Baptized to show we follow Jesus.

    Unfortunately the catholics believe Baptism gives them Salvation. Catholics really need to study the Bible instead of listening to their false church.

  • JoeBama says:

    The New Testament was originally written in the Greek language. The Greek word we get the word “baptism” from, means to immerse.

    Immersion is to dip down into the water. It is an overwhelming. The one being baptized is lowered into (until he is completely under) the water and then lifted up out of the water. It is not just sprinkling or pouring a little water on top of someone.

    This can also be seen in Scripture.

    John 3:23 says, “Now John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there. And they came and were baptized.” Only immersion requires “much water”. Only immersion requires one to come to the water instead of the water being brought to them.

    Baptism is described as going down into the water and coming up out of the water. (Matthew 3:16-17, Acts 8:38-39) Only immersion has the one being baptized going into the water.

    Also, baptism is described as a burial. (Romans 6:3-4, Colossians 2:12) Only immersion buries the one being baptized.

    It’s funny that the only place that people have trouble understanding baptism is in religion. If someone were to say they were “baptized in debt”, would you think they had just a sprinkling of debt (a few bills)? No, someone described in this way is figuratively “covered up” with debt.

    I saw a sports article that said the freshmen on a football team had an “early baptism”. Of course it meant they were plunged into full sudden participation in the program. They did not just see a “sprinkling” of activity, but they were fully involved.

    If we can understand this everywhere else, why not in religion?

    The Catholic Church also teaches “infant baptism”.

    Those who teach infant baptism many times point to the households that were baptized in the New Testament. They assume these households had infants and those young children were included in the baptism.

    This, however is just an assumption. It is risky to base your doctrine on a guess that cannot be proven from the Scriptures!

    In fact, the context of many of these scriptures DISPROVE infant baptism. Notice for example the household of the keeper of the prison in Acts 16.

    He was baptized with his household (verse 33). But notice also, all his household was taught ( verse 32), and they all believed (verse 34). An infant cannot be taught, and an infant cannot believe. Therefore, this “household” did not include any infants.

    Some point to the household of Stephanas and they refer to 1 Corinthians 1:16. In this same book, 1 Corinthians 16:15 says, “you know the household of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to the ministry of the saints.” An infant can not devote himself to the ministry of the saints, so this example also does not show infant baptism!

    The idea of infant baptism is related to the mistaken idea that babies are born with the guilt of inherited sin. If a baby is guilty of sin, the thought is that they should be baptized to wash away that sin.

    The Bible however teaches that “sin is the transgression of the law.” (1 John 3:4) If a baby is guilty of sin, what law have they transgressed? A baby is not capable of transgressing, or even understanding, any law.

    But, what about inherited sin (guilt)?

    This idea goes against many verses, including Ezekiel 18:20.

    “The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.”

    This verse clearly teaches that children do not inherit the guilt of sin. Deut. 1:39 says little children “have no knowledge of good and evil.”

    To be baptized one must first believe and repent, therefore, baptism is not for infants. (Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38)

    Notice the eunuch in Acts 8. He asked, “What hinders me from being baptized?” (verse 36) “Then Philip said, ‘If you believe with all your heart, you may.'” (verse 37)

    A baby cannot believe, therefore a baby would not meet this requirement for one to be baptized.

    Also, please consider the following verses:

    Acts 8:12 says, “But when they believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized.” Notice it says they were baptized “when they believed” and the ones being baptized were “men and women”!

    Acts 18:8 says, “And many of the Corinthians, hearing, believed and were baptized.” Notice the order. They heard, they believed, then they were baptized. This is the same order in all of the conversions in the book of Acts and in Mark 16:16, and Mathew 28:18-20!

    An infant cannot believe, therefore they are not yet candidates for scriptural baptism!
