What is baptism?
Who can be baptized?
Can baptism save my child?
Why should my child be baptized?
At what age should children be baptized?
Will I discourage my child if I decide to wait?
How can I practically prepare my child for baptism?
What do I do if I feel like my child is ready to be baptized?
I would recommend that your child attend a class called First Step that is offered a few times each year. The class is for 1st – 6th graders and its intended purpose is two-fold:
- First, for those children who are developing their understanding of the gospel and are coming to faith in Christ this class will help to nurture, solidify and confirm the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
- Second, for children who are beginning their walk of faith this class will give practical instruction on how to grow as disciple of Christ. Topics such as how to pray and study the Bible, what it means to be baptized, and the importance of the Lord’s Supper will be discussed.
