The Promise of Baptism
Featured Topic #35: The Promise of Baptism.
When parents bring a child to be baptized, they promise to teach him about the Lord and to guide him to obey the teachings of the Word. When an adult is baptized, he promises to turn away from evil and look to the Lord. Baptism is an entryway to the church, a recognition that it can help us know and love our God.
