Can I baptize my own children?

Question:  I know that Scripture tells us to go and make disciples of men, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Is there anything that prevents me, as the spiritual head of my household, from baptizing my family personally?

Answer:  Nowhere in Scripture is baptism relegated to ordained clergy.  Anyone who is a believer can baptize another believer.  Here at Grace, minister typically baptize.  However, that is not set in stone–it is simply our practice.
