Before I get more into the actual wuestion and basis, let me give you a background of myself. I was in beauty pageants for my whole life. I was in talent shows....any way that my face could be pushed out, and made public, I did it. Well, I have become humble and modest. I dont want attention, and I dont want people watching me. I would like to sit back and be part of the crowd. I feel that baptism is between God and myself. This is my act to show Him that I love Him, and have accepted Christ, and want my sins wiped away...so far, everyone I have spoken to says that I am supposed to do this in front of the church. It is a public ceremony. If that is the case, then I truly don't wish to go through with a baptism. I know preachers who would do this for me, with maybe my husband, and a few friends with me. I seriously want no more than 5 people to see this act. Is that ok? Or do I really need to do this in front of my whole congregation?
