It is interesting looking at forms of Baptism, as an Anglican, it depends on the Church, we HAVE Churches with full immersion tanks, mine does not, our sanctuary used to be a Presbyterian Church so we are not set up to "dunk" so we pour, or in a recent case, a Gentleman with severe MS in a wheelchair, our Pastor sprinkled, (it was just easier). All these methods have been used for 2 thousand years, sometimes pouring was the only way to do it because of limited place for immersion, or perhaps someone is bed-ridden, but wishes this. In my case I like to joke that I have all m bases covered, I was infant Baptized, THEN as an adult, I made Pilgrimage to Jerusalem and took full immersion in River Jordan. (Brrr! That was cold!) Blessings.
