I was previously baptized in a different Christian denomination. They give out a Baptismal certificate at the time of Baptism…however I don’t think the certificate survived our move. If I cannot prove baptism, will I be required to be baptized again in order to join the church?
Hello! Great question! I’m not sure if there is a universal answer for this. It will probably depend on what your local diocese requires. Your church of baptism may also have a record of it. I don’t know how non-Catholic churches track baptisms, but Catholic parishes are required to record all sacraments in special books. Hopefully your church of baptism has some record and you would be able to receive a copy if you need it.
