Baptism is Not Faith: Reformed Theology v the Federal Vision

  1. Dr. Clark,

    The Westminster Confession Chapter 28 section 5 makes it clear ( “Although it be a great sin to contemn or neglect this ordinance, yet grace and salvation are not so inseparably annexed unto it as that no person can be regenerated or saved without it, or that all that are baptized are undoubtedly regenerated”.) that partaking or not partaking in a baptismal ceremony in the visible church is not a means of salvation .

    Yet under what circumstances exactly, if any, does a Union with Christ occur? Is there a straightforward answer to such a question as this last one?
