Should I get my baby baptized? Is christening a baby the right thing to do? If you are asking these questions, it shows that you have a genuine concern for your child's future-a future that will be in serious jeopardy if you as a parent are not careful to make wise decisions on your child's behalf. The fact is, infant baptism is only the first in a long line of critical choices that you will have to make in the foreseeable future. These decisions will determine what kind of person this little baby you are holding in your arms will ultimately become, as well as their eternal destiny. Having a child makes you a parent, and parents-in God's eyes-are responsible for training their child in the teachings of the Lord. This book first helps you understand God's teaching on the subject of baptism, and then moves on from there to share proven Christian child raising techniques that will help you raise a child that will bring you joy as a parent.
