What Is Baptism And Is It For Infants?
For a Biblical precedent, in Acts it says that the ones who were baptized then were “men and women”... not infants. (Acts 8:12) Baptism was for those capable of ‘hearing the word,’ ‘embracing the word heartily,’ and ‘repenting’, something infants are not capable of doing. (Acts 2:14, 22, 38, 41)
Additionally, the Bible indicates that God considers holy the young children of Christian parents. (1 Corinthians 7:14) Such a statement would be pointless if the baptism of infants were necessary for their salvation.
