Any time parents see signs of conversion in a young child’s life, the question will naturally and rightly arise: When should my child be baptized and added as a member of the church? That’s a good question, and it’s right for that question to press on a parent’s heart. But even so, it’s not an easy one to answer, and different Christians have come to thoughtful, principled, careful—and yet very different—conclusions on it.
Our elders, in thinking through this issue, have adopted some guiding principles regarding the baptism of believing children. We encourage all parents to read through our church's policy on Childhood Baptism & Membership as they consider this issue of children's baptism.
