conditional Baptism


Baptism administered with these words expressing a condition, “If thou art not yet baptized, I baptize thee,” etc. Baptism cannot be repeated; but in the reception of converts, when, after diligent investigation, there remains a reasonable doubt as to the fact or validity of their Baptism, the sacrament is given conditionally.
