Catabaptism in the Presbyterian Church in America

At the 1982 General Assembly of the PCA, some truly excellent advice was given on a very vexing practical question.  For the General Assembly had been asked by the Western Carolina Presbytery: "May baptism properly be administered to individuals who have been 'christened' or baptized in infancy, when it had been apparent that neither parent was a believer?"644

To this question, the response proposed at the 1982 General Assembly, recorded in its Minutes, rightly remonstrated: "No.  Baptism is but once administered to any person (WCF 28:7).  Baptism [is to be] with water, in the Name of the Triune God, by [the] most significant manner possible." Westminster Confession of Faith 28:2,3,6.
