Original sin

Mennonites believe that people are born with a sinful nature. This is based on various scriptures, such as Romans 1:21-32; 6:23. We believe, however, that it is not proper to baptize infants because they do not know the difference between good and evil. We believe that when persons understand their need for salvation and accept Christ as Savior, they are changed both in their relationship to God as well as in their moral relationships to other persons.
