Is the Baptist church named after John the Baptist?

No. Both Baptists and Anabaptists have their names deriving from the idea that they would "re-baptize" people. By 1500's it had become normative to practice the Christian rite of baptism on infants as an expression of faith of the parents.Both Baptists and Anabaptists believed that baptism is to express the faith of the individual. Therefore, people who joined Baptist or Anabaptist groups were required to undergo "believer's baptism" even if they had been baptized as infants.John the Baptist was described as such because his most famous role in the Bible was as the one who baptized Jesus. Even though John did practice believer's baptism, he was not a "Baptist" in the Christian sense. John's baptism was a Jewish baptism of repentance. (The English term "baptize" is simply the transliteration of a Greek word meaning to dip or immerse.) It was pre-Christian.

What do Baptists think of baptism?

Baptist's views on baptism: Baptism is first a transliteration of the word since we didn't have a word for it in English. It means to be surrounded and engulfed. Baptists feel that the act of baptism is an outward demonstration of the love of God engulfing and surrounding them. It is also a following of Jesus since John the Baptist did it to him. Baptists do not believe that it is necessary for salvation. The example used is the thief on the cross was not baptised yet Jesus said, "Today you will be in Paradise." The reason baptists follow this action is an act of obedience to the Word of God.

What is the Baptist connection to John the Baptist?

No connection really, although some Baptist Christians have sought to see a connection. Baptists, as a recognized entity, go back to the early 1600s. They often describe themselves as a "New Testament" church because of their emphasis on two ordinances (or sacraments), the use of immersion in baptism, and simplicity of their church and church leadership structure (things they hold in common with churches of the 1st century). John the Baptist was a Jewish prophet who carried out immersion baptism (like the Baptists). However, it was pre-Christian rite that it marked a radical repentance. Within the Christian context, baptism is a formal and public association of oneself with Christ, His death, and His resurrection.
