John Smyth, one of the very early Baptist, became convinced that believer's baptism was correct and that infant baptism was incorrect. He then baptised himself. Quite a number of years later Johann Oncken also came to believe that believer's baptism was correct. But there was no ordained ministers or missionaries where he lived. He was encouraged by others to baptism himself, but he refused and had to wait a number of years before he was baptised by an ordained American missionary. What is your feeling on self-baptism by a believer?
