The debate over baptism focuses on the practice of baptizing infants or small children who have not made a profession of faith. However, it is important to understand that all denominations practice believer’s baptism—the baptism of adults and older children who make a profession of faith. In this message, we will see that believer’s baptism also follows the pattern established by the LORD in the Abrahamic covenant. Thus, once again, Abraham is the pattern.
