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.
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.
Baptism is a Christian idea and comes from John the Bapist as a recipient of the Holly Spirit to foretell the coming of Jesus. Muslims do not have baptism.
Catholicism is a particular form of Christianity, represented by the Roman Catholic Church. Baptism is a religious sacrament used by Catholics, but also by other Christian churches such as the Episcopalian and Baptists Churches.

Southern Baptists believe that baptism is an outward demonstration of what has already taken place inside. It is not necessary for salvation. Following Jesus in the act of baptism shows how a child of God humbles himself to his maker and has a rebirth of water and spirit.
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.
the first baptism was in Jesus' time when John the Baptist baptized him .Roman Catholic answerThe baptism of John the Baptist was a baptism of repentance, and not Christian baptism. Christian baptism is first mentioned in the gospel of John, Chapter 4, verses 1-2 and performed by the disciples. At the end of Matthew's Gospel, Jesus commissions the disciples "Go therefor and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit... There are baptisms in the book of Acts.
Some Christian denominations believe in baptizing the children of believers shortly after birth.Some of the larger denominations that practice believers’ or adult baptism include Baptists, Pentecostals and Churches of Christ.
Yes, they both believe in one God.------------------------------------------------------------------------------Basically yes, Baptists agree with the basic Christian doctrines but separate themselves in that they believe that only Christian believers should be baptized (called "believer's baptism") and that this baptism should occur by whole body immersion, a practice they trace back to the early Church.
The Catholic Church has the fullness of the Christian faith as established by Our Blessed Lord, Jesus Christ, and all seven sacraments which He ordained for our salvation. The Baptists do not have access to any of the sacraments, save Baptism, and do not have a valid priesthood.
Probably not. Baptism was not a Christian ritual until John the Baptist baptized Jesus Christ in the first century.
Any of the Anabaptists, such as Calvinists, Baptists, and most of the Evangelical Protestant churches.

No, baptism is a Christian ceremony.

Christian baptism started with the Apostles, and then with them baptizing those who came to believe.
In Christian denominations, baptism is a symbol of being completely cleansed. There are two main methods: full immersion, and the pouring water on the head. A number of denominations practice full immersion baptism (LDS, Baptists), where the whole body is briefly immersed in water. Sprinkling is the term given to the mode of pouring by those who do not believe that it is a legitimate baptism.

A mikvah is a purifying bath, but "baptism" in the Christian understanding I am not aware of.There is no Hebrew definition of baptism as this is a ceremony of purely Christian origin.
Methodist allow baptism of adults, youth and infants without age discrimination, but Baptists allow baptism only to confessing adults and youth. Methodist allow all methods of baptism like immersion, pouring and sprinkling, but Baptists perform only immersion strictly.
This is because all Christian denominations practice baptism. If you are baptized, you become a Christian.
