LESSON 7 – BAPTISM – IS IT A WORK OF GOD OR A WORK OF MAN?
Baptism… is it a work of man or God? What is it? What does it do? Why does it matter? Why do Lutherans baptize babies? We’ll answer these questions and more in Lesson 7.
As you complete a lesson there may be some questions you’d like to discuss further. That’s great! We love questions! Please e-mail Pastor Horn and he will set up a time to chat with you.

Does God do something special through baptism? Over the centuries millions of Christians have said, “Yes! God works in the waters of baptism, not only giving a sign and seal of His grace, but actually delivering to the baptized His regenerating Spirit.” Others, however, who have permitted their understanding of baptism to be guided by mere human reason and sight, declare that baptism is merely man’s response to the grace of God obtained elsewhere.
