Westminster Confession of Faith

Chapter 28: Of Baptism

1: Baptism is a sacrament of the New Testament, ordained by Jesus Christ,[521] not only for the solemn admission of the party baptized into the visible Church;[522] but also to be unto him a sign and seal of the covenant of grace,[523] of his ingrafting into Christ,[524] of regeneration,[525] of remission of sins,[526] and of his giving up unto God, through Jesus Christ, to walk in the newness of life.[527]Which sacrament is, by Christ’s own appointment, to be continued in His Church until the end of the world.[528]
