Conversion, Baptism, and Membership of Children

Every parent and pastor’s desire is to see children converted from sin and rebellion to forgiveness and obedience to the gospel. At the same time, few topics are so theologically charged as the conversion, baptism, and membership of children. The stakes are no lower for the relational impact these issues have on a pastor’s ministry. Pastors would do well to think carefully and practically before facing the variety of issues that attend the relationship of children to the church.

So listen (twice!) as Brian Croft and Jim Savastio share their insights from decades of pastoral experience and Biblical thought. They will address questions like…

  • Are these concerns only for Baptist churches?
  • How do pastors think through the baptism of their own children?
  • How can pastors work with parents to discern the conversion of children?
  • What can a young person learn about following Jesus from joining a church at a young age?
