Biblical and pastoral, simple and accessible, this booklet explains in a nontechnical style why we should baptize the infants of believing parents. Chapell addresses the biblical background of infant baptism, its biblical basis, and its benefits to parents and children. He also shows pastors how to administer the sacrament in ways that are meaningful and helpful for their churches.
Basics of the Faith booklets introduce readers to basic Reformed doctrine and practice. On issues of church government and practice they reflect that framework—otherwise they are suitable for all church situations.
