The issue of baptism is one that not all Christians agree on, but sometimes the lack of agreement in this area leads to an assumption that this isn’t an important issue. That simply isn’t the case. Jesus commands his people in the great commission to make disciples by baptizing and teaching them (Matthew 28:18-20). There’s good, earnest Christians on either side of this issue. But regardless of where you fall on this, it is very important. What follows is adapted from the explanation I gave before baptizing my son Felix. My hope is it may be helpful for others in understanding the Reformed, covenantal view of baptism.
