I don't think I'm catching the connection between baptism & obeying elders. My church very carefully follows Titus when we are electing our elders and deacons, but I don't see a portion in there that mentions baptism.

Do you mean that elders should be leading the church to believer baptism, so if a church practices infant baptism then they aren't being properly led by their elders & therefore isn't being blessed? I think I'm still not getting it.
