Believer's baptism occasionally called credobaptism , from the Latin word credo meaning "I believe" is the Christian practice of baptism as is understood by many evangelical denominations, particularly those that descend from the Anabaptist and English Baptist tradition. According to their understanding, a person is baptized on the basis of his or her profession of faith in Jesus Christ and as admission into a local community of faith. The contrasting belief, held in nearly every other Christian tradition, is infant baptism pedobaptism or paedobaptism, from the Greek paido meaning "child" , in which infants or young children are baptized if one or both parents are already members of the denomination. Baptisms are carried out in various ways: believer's baptism is typically only by immersion or pouring also called affusion and infant baptism by either immersion, affusion , and aspersion sprinkling. Believer's baptism is often referred to as adult baptism due to the belief that faith cannot exist prior to the age of accountability.
