When Should My Children Be Baptized?

A querist asks, “At what point in their life should my children be baptized?”

As we all know, children mature at different rates. Having arrived at both genuine faith and the need for remission of sins at a relatively early age, one child may be a proper candidate for baptism, while another child may not reach this point until well into adolescence.

The best plan is for Christian parents and grandparents to educate their children and grandchildren (at a very young age) as to what God commands people to do in order to be saved (cf. Ephesians 6:4; 2 Timothy 1:5; 2 Timothy 3:15). This is accomplished by answering any Bible questions they might ask and lovingly encouraging their steps toward faith (1 Peter 3:15; Romans 10:17).

Before we answer the querist’s question by Scripture, let us ask and biblically answer the following question:
