    103. What has been revealed to us is that the ordinary way of salvation is by the sacrament of Baptism. None of the above considerations should be taken as qualifying the necessity of Baptism or justifying delay in administering the sacrament.[135] Rather, as we want to reaffirm in conclusion, they provide strong grounds for hope that God will save infants when we have not been able to do for them what we would have wished to do, namely, to baptize them into the faith and life of the Church.

    Does a person get reborn by the water?

    if yes, what if they never come to faith in Christ?

    I just want to elaberate on Limbo in the teaching of the Catholic Church using the link billwald posted. It is just to emphasise a point I made earlier on another thread.

    I personally have concluded that the NT uses several words and phrases to mean the same thing. For example, it is not productive to ask can a person be born again if he is not water baptized or not spirit baptized or did not "invite Jesus" or failed to "accept Jesus as lord as well as savior."

    Anyway, Baptists do not "believe in" sacraments. Water baptism is only an illustration of an event which could have occurred decades ago.
