In the Presbyterian Church, Baptism is the sacrament of initiation into the Christian life. When a child is baptized, he or she is not only claimed as a beloved child of God in Christ, but becomes a member of Christ’s universal Church. Along with his or her parent or parents, the congregation vows “to support and encourage the child to be a faithful Christian” (The Book of Common Worship, p. 406). It is the responsibility of the parents, the congregation, and the pastor to provide the child support and instruction in the Christian faith so that he or she can eventually unite with a particular congregation as an active member by his or her own profession of faith.
