Every person who has believed in Christ should be baptized. (Acts 2:41, Acts 8:13, Acts 8:12.)
At Faith Promise, we wait until our children are old enough to believe and understand the true meaning of baptism before we baptize them.
Some churches practice a “baptism of confirmation” for children. This ceremony is intended to be a covenant between the parents and God on behalf of the child. The parents promise to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his/her own personal profession of faith in Jesus. This custom began about 300 years after the Bible was completed, and we have a Child Dedication service for just that reason! The baptism talked about in the Bible is only for those old enough to believe for themselves.
At Faith Promise, it is a requirement that every member must have been baptized the way Jesus demonstrated.
