COVENANT INFANT BAPTISM
One of the things that divides the Church today is baptism. People are often exposed to one particular view of baptism and often don't know much about other views. Many Christians cannot adequately and fairly explain the various views - they only know one.
Also, many people change views as they study Scripture more and grow in doctrine. Chances are you grew up in a church that baptized believers upon their confession of faith. But have you ever considered and investigated the Reformed view of baptism?
"Throughout church history, the practice of infant baptism has been far and away the majority report."
Sproul, R. C. (2011). What Is Baptism? (First edition, Vol. 11, pp. 59–60). Orlando, FL: Reformation Trust.
The Reformed view of infant baptism differs from the Lutheran and Roman Catholic view of infant baptism. Reformed Theology is Covenant Theology, and to understand the Reformed view of baptism (and many theological topics), you need to know a bit about Covenant Theology. The following resources will begin to help you grasp what the Bible says about baptism. The following PDF can help give you a great start (see HERE)!
