    Politics

    The belief in religious freedom and its corollary, the separation of the institutions of church and state, come from the commitment to the authority of the Bible.

    Any individual, child, or otherwise cannot be baptized until they come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ—then, and only then, would a person be baptized.
