Water is poured on the head of an infant held over the baptismal font of a Roman Catholic church. Infant baptism is the practice of baptising infants or young children. In theological discussions, the practice is sometimes referred to as paedobaptism, or pedobaptism, from the . These and other questions are explored in this thought-provoking historic views on baptism are considered in depth:• Baptism of the professing regenerate by immersion (Baptist)• Believers’ baptism on the occasion of regeneration by immersion (Christian Churches/Churches of Christ)• Infant baptism by sprinkling as a /5(30).
Unbaptized infants are not saved while baptized infants may be This is the view of the Roman Catholic church and Protestant denominations which teach some form of baptismal regeneration.

While these verses do not refer specifically to infants, they do teach us that the loving and merciful heart of our God desires the salvation of all men. We know that the Lord Jesus had a tender and compassionate heart for the little children and was much displeased when His disciples were hindering them from coming to Him (Mark ).
The principle that God desires the salvation of all people gives rise to the hope that there is a path to salvation for infants who die without baptism (cf. CCC, ), and therefore also to the theological desire to find a coherent and logical connection between the diverse affirmations of the Catholic faith: the universal salvific will of God.
For instance, Augustine says: “Now, inasmuch as infants are not held bound by any sins of their own actual life, it is the guilt of original sin which is healed in them by the grace of Him who saves them by the laver of regeneration” ().
Publick Baptism of Infants, Book of Common Prayer (). Whether or not you agree with John Davenant (who was influential at the Synod of Dort) that this is because baptism remits the guilt of original sin from infants, the Prayer Book states the general doctrine that baptized children dying in infancy are undoubtedly saved.

Endnote: In this case the children entered the promised land after growing to adulthood, but this passage in two ways supports the salvation of infants. First, it conveys the gracious attitude of God to those who are too young to discern good and evil, and secondly it may be seen as 'typical' of infants in relation to the eternal kingdom.
by Joel Beeke The salvation of our children is priceless; their spiritual needs far outweigh their physical needs.
They need our prayers—our earnest prayers with hearts aflame, both for their initial repentance and coming to Christ by faith, and for their life of ongoing growth in faith. The regeneration of infants does not seem to be God's usual way of working; we must keep in mind that "the wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray from birth, speaking lies" (Psalm ).
In light of these things, some have held that God saves some infants who. Infant salvation is nonetheless salvation, and salvation is the Lord’s (Psalm ). Furthermore, for the grieving parent, relative, or friend, lasting consolation is found not simply in the work of Christ for the infant sinner, but in the perfection and greatness of the Son of God Himself.
I received a letter that asks two questions about infant baptism—important questions that bring one to the heart of the biblical teaching concerning baptism and salvation.
The first question is whether the baptism of infants implies (1) that infants are believers or (2) that they will, in the future. The Reformed Church says: "Children are baptized as heirs of the Kingdom of God and of His covenant.
The Lutheran Church teaches that baptism, whether of infants or adults, is a means of regeneration. Because of the following declaration, I believe the Episcopal Church teaches that salvation comes through infant baptism.
 Therefore, baptismal regeneration or baptismal salvation sees within the very act of baptism the effective instrument of salvation from sin, separate and apart from faith, repentance.

Again, this view is only as cogent as is that particular interpretation of 1 Cor. INFANT SALVATION AS RELATED TO ORIGINAL SIN.

They differ essentially from each other, and result in essentially. There is an intimate and divinely established connexion between the faith of parents and the salvation of their children; such a connexion as authorizes them to plead God's promises, and to expect with confidence that through his blessing on their faithful efforts, their children will grow up the children of God.
Get this from a library. Infant salvation: in its relation to infant depravity, infant regeneration, and infant baptism. [J H A Bomberger]. Regeneration is the spiritual change wrought in the heart of man by the Holy Spirit in which his/her inherently sinful nature is changed so that he/she can respond to God in Faith, and live in accordance with His Will (Matt.
; John ,5,7; Titus ). Later Lutheranism, and perhaps Luther himself, (Book of Concord ). teaches that baptism achieves something different in adults than in children.
