Few things in life are more joyful than witnessing our kids come to faith in Christ. Some of our pastor’s favorite moments are getting to talk to children about their love for and desire to follow Jesus. Along these lines, one question we often get is: How do I know my child is ready for baptism?
It’s an important question – baptism is one of the most significant events in the Christian life. This article – written by the elders of Providence Church – seeks to provide some guidance for parents, as well as establish some norms for our church that we think will lead to greater discipleship of our children.
This article answers questions like:
- How Do I Know if My Child Is Ready for Baptism?
- How Are We Preparing Our Children for Baptism at Providence?
- What Do I Do if I Believe My Child Is Ready to Be Baptized?
If you are a parent with young children, we invite you to read through this article as a way of better understanding our practice as a church. If you have any questions about baptism and how you can engage your kids in these discussions, we would love to talk with you!
