One day that I look forward to after the birth of our babies is their Baptism Sunday. I pray that each of my children will not be able to remember a day that they didn't love Christ.

We make vows, or solemn promises, before the Sacrament is performed:
Do you acknowledge that, although our children are conceived and born in sin and therefore are subject to condemnation, they are holy in Christ, and as members of his church ought to be baptized?

Do you promise to instruct your child in the principles of our holy religion as revealed in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, and as summarized in the Confession of Faith and Catechisms of this Church;

and do you promise to pray with and for your child, to set an example of piety and godliness before him, and to endeavor by all the means of God's appointment to bring him up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord?

Becoming a covenant child:

Justin is the first person to be baptized in our church to have his children baptized there, too. I think that is really special.
Justin's family, Justin's grandma, and my dad with us:
