What effect does a person’s re-baptism in the Baptist church have?

Question:

If a person is baptized in the Catholic Church as an infant and then elects to be baptized in the Baptist church as an adult, what effect does this have?<br />

Answer:

The new baptism, in itself, has no effect. “Baptism seals the Christian with the indelible spiritual mark (character) of his belonging to Christ. . . . Given once for all, baptism cannot be repeated” (CCC 1272).
