Mary Allen's Baptism

This past Sunday we had the privilege to witness the baptism of Mary Allen. Many who read this post do not come from presbyterian convictions, so I thought it would be good to include the vows we took concerning our covenant daughter.

  1. Do you as parents of this young girl, newly accept the covenant of grace, believing that is also for your daughter?
  2. Do you believe you are sinners and that your daughter has inherited a sinful nature?
  3. Do you believe that the Holy Spirit is the only one who can regenerate and sanctify man?
  4. With the help of the Triune God, whose name we baptism your daughter, do you promise to show her a Christian example and instruct her in the knowledge and obedience of the Word of God, insuring that she grow and live conforming to the instructions of the Word of God?
  5. Under the terms of this covenant of grace, do you promise that when your daughter is at a sufficient age, you will help her understand that she has a privilege and holy duty to confess publicly her faith in Christ Jesus as her personal Lord and Savior.


Please join us in praying for Mary Allen that the promises offered to her in the covenant of grace would all come true.
