Abstract
The author's aim was to help his congregation become more Presbyterian in their thinking about baptism. By means of surveys, informal discussions and formal counseling, he discovered what his congregation thought about baptism. By interviewing local ministers about their views on baptism, he discovered why some in his congregation held non-Presbyterian views on baptism. The author preached four sermons, outlining the Presbyterian understanding of the basis, subjects, meaning and mode of baptism, and compiled a workbook on baptism, which was used in counseling parents who wanted their children baptised. A final survey indicated some success in fulfilling the author's aim.
