Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox

Post by jancancook on Thu Mar 24, 2011 7:38 am

Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox Churches, and many Anglicans view Confirmation as a sacrament. In the East it is conferred on infants immediately after baptism, but in the West it is usually administered later at the age of reason or in early adolescence.

In Protestant churches, the rite tends to be seen rather as a mature statement of faith by an already baptised person. It is also required by most Protestant denominations for membership in the respective church, in particular for traditional Protestant churches. In traditional Protestant churches (Presbyterian, Methodist, Lutheran, Evangelical etc.) it is recognized by a coming of age ceremony.[citation needed] Confirmation is not practised in Baptist, Anabaptist and other groups that teach believer's baptism.
