Presbyterians Consider the Children of Even One Believer to Be a Part of the Church
God has commanded us to make disciples of all nations. We are to baptize those who are becoming a part of the covenant community, the church. We are then to be engaged in teaching those who have been baptized to obey all of the Lord’s commands. (Matt 28:18-20) Children are to be considered as a part of the church if they have even one believing parent. (1 Cor 7:14) We believe in training young people in the faith. We encourage parents in their duties to read the Bible to their children, to instruct them in the faith, to pray with and for them, and to set them a godly example. Through the teaching ministry of the church we desire to teach young and old the whole counsel of God.
