Biblical and pastoral, simple and accessible, this booklet explains in a nontechnical style why we should baptize the infants of believing parents. Chapell addresses the biblical background of infant baptism, its biblical basis, and its benefits to parents and children. He also shows pastors how to administer the sacrament in ways that are meaningful and helpful for their churches.

Basics of the Faith booklets introduce readers to basic Reformed doctrine and practice. On issues of church government and practice they reflect that framework—otherwise they are suitable for all church situations.


“P&R Publishing is to be commended for this series of booklets that are intentionally biblical and Reformed in content. They will enable Christians to better understand and appreciate the topics. ‘Readability,’ ‘reliability,’ and ‘to the point’ best describe each booklet.”

—Charles Dunahoo

“Those who teach and lead will love these booklets because they are a perfect resource to share with inquirers and to use in discipleship. Church members will love them because they supply meaty and understandable instruction in important aspects of Christian doctrine, duty, and devotion.”

—Ligon Duncan
