I am new to the board, joining this past Sunday. I have been hesitant to ask this question, but issues have been raised in the SBC church I am a member of. Our pastor wishes to baptize couples together, who have previously been baptized individually. He told my wife that when the couples are married they become on unit; therefore, they can be baptized a "second time". Also, he mailed a card which stated if anyone wishes to "renew their baptism and show the world your saved!" to please contact him. My wife pressed him for scripture to support his positions, but he was unable to provide any. He also stated to my wife that the church called him as pastor and to trust him. Since the pastor is advocating doctrine, in conflict with the church's Statement of Faith; should that be grounds for dismissal or should my wife and I leave the church and find one that teaches the ordinance of baptism as we believe the Bible teaches? If or when this issue comes before the church body he would have the support, unfortunately, to do as he desires. I am deeply troubled at the lack of scriptural knowledge of our church body. Any advice or help someone can provide me in how to deal with this issue would be greatly appreciated.
