Where can I baptize my child without having to be a member of a church? I live in dallas texas

I are great believers in God but we do not belong to any church. I want to baptize her by november 9th or the 30th. do the godparents have to be married by church also?

Each church has different guidelines.
I was not a member of a church but I did attend a church when my 2 sons were born. I took them forward and dedicated them. We did not baptize babies. When they grew older... They chose when to accept the Lord and wanted to be baptized. It was their choice. Catholics have very different beliefs in this matter. You will have to talk to a pastor if you want the ceremony in a church.

That is part of religious dogma, not something God told people to do. It is meaningless without the belief and belonging to that community.

You need to belong to a church to prove that you are a believer. Ya just can't go and ask someone to baptize your kid. You need to be baptized into the faith of a church and then your kid needs to attend classes and so do you.

U should go to an apostolic church and dedicate it to god(basically you vow to raise it in the ways of the lord and the preachers in the church pray for you and your baby)u can't baptize a baby because it doesn't know right from wrong .when you know right from wrong then you get baptize.

My son and his wife do not belong to any church. They had their baby baptized by a Lutheran minister.

You did not mention the church. You might want to call churches and ask. Godparents have to be Catholic, they do not need to be married
