Baptism is one of two sacraments of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Baptism functions as a sign and symbol of inclusion in God’s grace and covenant with the church. Both believers and their children are included in God’s covenant love. Baptism signifies the beginning of life in Christ, not its completion.
Ordinarily, the parent(s) or one(s) rightly exercising parental responsibility shall be an active member of the congregation. The Session may consider a request for the baptism of a child from a Christian parent who is an active member of another congregation.
