Most Baptist churches say that to be a member of the local church (and therefore have financial responsibility and voting rights), one must have accepted Christ as Savior and Lord, and have followed Him in the waters of Believer's Baptism, by immersion. That being said, what about persons who, because of a physical disability or set of special circumstances, cannot be immersed? Should we 1. Deny baptism and membership? 2. Grant membership without baptism? 3. Baptize by another method and grant membership? What if someone who is saved underwent a believer's baptism (not infant baptism) for the purpose of the testimony, but it was administered by another method (pouring, for example) because of special circumstances. Should this person be granted membership in the local church on the basis of their testimony and that baptism? What should be required?
