The only one thing is true; baptism should be performed by adults and they have to be fully emerged into water. First of all it is necessary to define what baptism is. According to the Bible, “Baptism is the act of washing or dipping a person in the water. Baptism shows that a person’s sins washed away.   But the authority of the church in the denomination is contexted within Adventism’s understanding of the authority of the Bible and that of Ellen White.
