I was baptized by a female priest. Was it legitimate?



I was baptized a year ago. Since then I've been a bit worried about something. My question might sound a bit silly, but the Bible tells us that women must keep silent in church. I was baptized by a female priest. Have I been 'officially' baptized? Am I going to hell? Do I need to get baptized by a man?

Thank you


I can think of only a few denominations that have female priests. None of these denominations practice the type of baptism that is found in the Bible, which is by immersion and done for the remission of sin. See: Is My Baptism Valid?

Regarding whether a woman can perform a baptism, see: Can a woman baptize someone?
