Baptism stands at the center of our Christian experience in the church. This sacrament marks our entrance into the people of God, both as infants and adults. This study explores the theological meanings of baptism in the Reformed and Presbyterian traditions. The lessons focus on Remember your Baptism, Through the Waters, the Holy Spirit, Death and Resurrection, Baptism of Infants and Children, and Initiation into the Church. This study enables us to understand the importance of baptism and the dimensions that mark it as of key importance to us. It also helps us recognize ways baptism has an ongoing and daily significance for Christians in the church.
Being Reformed: Faith Seeking Understanding is a series of biblically based mini-courses that provides adults with a foundational understanding of the Reformed faith. Each six-session study--written by well-known and respected scholars--features Scripture, prayer, in-depth commentary, and questions for reflection. Each study addresses its subject from a Reformed theological perspective. Lessons are enhanced through the Leader's Guide, which offers helpful suggestions and direction for group study. The main structure for these guides is the rubric Head, Heart, and Hands.
