Abstract

Catholic missionaries who arrived in America found the natives practicing baptism and were horrified. Some cultures sprinkled while others immersed the infant, but it was always meant to lead the individual toward a better life and salvation in the kingdom of God. These practices are explained by the Book of Mormon text that informs the reader that baptism was introduced early in America’s history.
