Question:

I just started going to a church of Christ and love it. They're a real loving congregation. I was just baptized. I'm new to all this but have OCD and am particular. I find it odd that they baptized me forward while I was on my knees. I'm new to all this and felt confident of it at first but was just curious if that's still valid. I know Jesus probably knows the intent and isn't that picky, but I still worry just because I'm a paranoid person and want things perfect.

Answer:

The word "baptized" comes from a Greek word that means immerse. Baptism represents the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Thus, what is important is that you went down under the water. The direction you went down doesn't matter.
