    Good evening,

    I have a question for the forum:

    Do Reformed Presbyterians consider the baptism of those who convert from the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) to be valid?

    I have several family members who were baptized as infants into the RCC who are now attending Baptist Churches and considering membership. Now I know the Baptists will require them to be re-baptized as believers by immersion, but what about if they sought membership in a Reformed Presbyterian denomination? Would they need to be baptized again?

    It depends.

    Here's a good starting point on the issues:

    And then there are these threads:

    Is Roman Catholic baptism valid?

    Should I be baptized (or rebaptized)?
