All Christian parents long for their children to trust in Christ and to make their profession of faith public. It’s not surprising that children raised in Christian homes sooner or later will ask a parent, “When can I be baptized?” The same question is often asked regarding communion – “When can I take the Lord’s Supper?” It’s not surprising, then, that pastors and Children’s Ministry Directors are asked these same questions by parents. How does a parent know when it is appropriate for a child to take part in these very important and vital ordinances of the church?
