Not me, I was baptized as an unknowing infant. Later, in my early twenties, I was baptised by full immersion after some very intense Bible study and giving my life to Christ.

Rebecca, why did you feel that it was necessary to be baptised 3 times? You say that the bible speaks of total immersion but does it speak of multiple immersion? What did your pastor have to say each time you asked to be baptised again?

Baptism can be total immersion or pouring of water over the forehead. But, the person must be Bapized in the Name of the Trinity as Jesus instructed. Not just in Jesus's name.
If you were Baptized in this way, all other Baptism after this one has no effect. Once Baptized, always baptized.
But, a baptized person can go to Hell, if they reject Jesus.

I have been baptised three times and all three times, I have been total immersion. What other way is there? The bible speaks of total immersion.

Was baptized [submerged] at ten with others of my faith, felt real good afterwards, did'nt have a clue what it mean though instructed. When 'saved/born again', I was (re)baptized according to Acts 2:37-*38 since I had not 'repented' the first time/baptized in Jesus' name. Guess what? Father, Son, & Holy Ghost used again/I felt nothing! Doctrines/baptisms do not 'save' anyone, Father, Son, & Holy Ghost is the same as in Jesus' name ["God is not the author of confusion"/'Echad' is clearer now].

I was baptized when I was a grown up person and what I come to know is all depends on the Church Doctrines.Some considers sprinkling water not a proper baptism so there is still need for second baptism which they recognise.Some denomination recognise sprinkling & some total immersion.

Emcee - I disagree. Baptism is NOT what takes our sins away. It is the sign that we have died to the old, and are born into the new, but ONLY Jesus takes our sins away.

I was baptized as a young adult but it was just water poured over my head. There were no meaning because I just wanted to be married in the Catholic church. Just over the summer, I got baptized again but I was sumergized in water and being baptized has a different meaning. It means so much more to me. When I came up from being dunked, I felt like a different person.

Baptism is an outward sign of inward grace,administered as a form of initiation & erasing "Original sin" the sin we inherit from our forefathers ieA&E.Its a first time thing & that is all.You may be baptised a thousand times after that & even while taking a bath. but it does you no good.Baptism confirs on you the gifts of the Holy spirit Faith Hope & Charity.If you are baptised as an adult then all sins are taken away but just once.

I do not believe that it is improper to be baptised more than once. A friend was baptised in the RCC as a baby. At school, she had a Baptist friend who was baptised full immersion. She went along as company. But later, when she understood, she asked to be baptised again. This time it meant something to her.

I was baptized four times. The first when I was 10 and accepted Jesus as my Savior, baptized in a baptistry at a Baptist Church. I was put into a foster home. The foster parents wanted to make sure I was saved, baptized in a creek by their Nazarene pastor. I was adopted later by Mormons who insisted I had to be baptized into the "true" church, baptized in a swimming pool. When I became an adult I recommitted my life to the Lord 100% and chose to be baptized to reconfirm my life to God.

Could you explain why you were baptized three times?
---Bruce5656 on 10/23/06|
If you have been baptized at any age, by any means it is improper and unnecessary to be baptized again.
Baptism is a once in a life time event; age and volume of water are insignificant all forms of Christian Baptism are equally valid.
