Baptism: My Adoption into God’s Family
Baptism is not just a church rite that identifies a person as a Christian. It is a mighty act of the triune God in which he washes away sin and creates saving faith. Sinners are born again as his children; they become living members of Christ’s church. Since Baptism does such great things, it isn’t surprising that it’s prominently featured throughout the New Testament. The book Baptism presents what the Bible teaches about the Sacrament and its meaning for the Christian’s everyday life of faith. It also discusses topics like baptizing infants and the custom of choosing godparents.
