What is the majority view within the Anglican Church on baptism? My son has joined a new Church.They have drilled into him that all the beliefs that we have taught him are false.
At the moment we are discussing the holy sacrament of baptism with him, his new Church has convinced him that baptism is just symbolic, and that it has no real importance by giving him many examples, one of which is that in his baptism he did not receive the Holy Spirit when he was baptised.
I contacted his new church, and they defended their position and what they preach by saying that they are part of the Church of England, and what they preach is the majority view on baptism within the Anglican Church.
I know that within the Anglican Church there are some Churches that have this belief. Which is why I'd like to know what is the majority view on this topic, do the majority of Anglicans believe that we receive the Holy Spirit when we are baptised or is that belief in the minority ?
