Excerpt
Excerpt: No Baptist begins to seek an answer to the question Who should be baptized? by studying the Bible's doctrine of the covenants. Rather, he begins with New Testament texts which deal directly with the term baptize. In a later study of Covenant Theology, he finds confirmation and undergirding of his conclusions. In the New Testament, we discover the nature of baptism defined. In the definition, something must be said about the person baptized. Its central significance is that the one baptized is said to be savingly joined to Christ. We agree that the definition in the Westminster Confession of Faith is essentially biblical: Baptism is a sacrament of the New Testament, ordained by Jesus Christ, not only for the solemn admission of the party baptized into the visible church, but also to be unto him a sign and seal of the covenant of grace, of his ingrafting into Christ, of regeneration, of remission of sins, and of his giving up unto God through Jesus Christ, to walk in newness of life.?
