No. In the UMC, we believe that baptism is a once-and-for-all event that belongs to Jesus, not any particular denomination. So you don’t have to be “baptized Methodist.” Baptism is baptism.

Sometimes people will ask – maybe if they’ve been away from the church or when something significant has happened in their lives – if they can be re-baptized. We don’t re-baptize, but what we can do is re-affirm your baptism. Please feel free to talk with one of the pastors.
