WHAT WE BELIEVE ABOUT BAPTISM
Our Lord commands baptism in Matthew 28:19, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” God Himself is present as His name is joined to the water, with all His power and all His blessings of forgiveness, life and salvation. Baptism is for people of any age. When young children are baptized, God enters their heart, grants them faith, calls them His beloved children and opens heaven to them. However, those who receive baptism after they have been brought to faith by God through His Gospel message are also assured that they have received all the blessings God has attached to baptism. Whatever age a person is baptized, all glory goes to God for bringing the person to faith and salvation.
