Pastor Matt speaks about the sacrament of covenantal infant baptism, before administering the sacrament. God made a covenant with Abraham, which was sealed with the sign of circumcision. At the heart of this covenant between God and Abraham was a deep promise, that God would be with and bless Abraham and his children. We too, as Christians, share in this same covenant in Christ Jesus. And as our children are a part of our community, they too enjoy the relational benefits of the covenant people. The water we apply to a child does not wash away original sin or save them. Infants in the Church are baptized because they are covenant children and should receive the sign of the covenant.
