Is Infant Baptism Valid?

Air Date May 18, 2013


Some churches baptize infants. Others believe baptism is an expression of faith, which no infant could possibly have. This Saturday on Up For Debate, Julie Roys explores the validity of infant baptism with guests on both sides of the issue. Joining her will be Gregg Strawbridge who is a proponent of infant baptism—and Larry Dyer who is a skeptic of it. You can join the discussion too, this Saturday at 8 a.m. on Up For Debate!
