One Response to Who Can Baptize?

  1. Doug Merrill says:

    I concur, Scott. While I was not an elder or a deacon, a dear older friend of mine, in whose life the Lord graciously used me as a “waterer,” accepted the Lord as his Savior. This man requested that I baptize him during a regularly scheduled baptismal service. The request was approved by the elders and I was pleased to be used in this way.
