For Children

From the Book of Divine Worship - Holy baptism - Rite One.

When the Office is used for Children, the Minister shall speak unto the Godfathers and Godmothers on this wise.

Dearly beloved, ye have brought this Child here to be baptized; ye have prayed that our Lord Jesus Christ would vouchsafe to receive him, to release him from sin, to sanctify him with the Holy Ghost, to give him the kingdom of heaven and everlasting life.

Dost thou, therefore, in the name of this Child, renounce the devil and all his works, the vain pomp and glory of the world, with all covetous desires of the same, and the sinful desires of the flesh, so that thou wilt not follow, not be led by them?

Answer

I renounce them all; and, by God's help, will endeavor not to follow, nor be led by them.

Minister

Dost thou believe all the Articles of the Christian Faith, as contained in the Apostles' Creed?

Answer

I do.

Minister

Wilt thou be baptized in this Faith?

Answer

That is my desire.

Minister

Wilt thou then obediently keep God's holy will and commandments, and walk in the same all the days of thy life?

Answer

I will, by God's help.

Minister

Having now, in the name of this Child, made these promises, wilt thou also on thy part take heed that this Child learn the Creed, the Lord's Prayer, the Ten Commandments, and all other things which a Christian ought to know and believe to his soul's health?

Answer

I will, by God's help.

Minister

Wilt thou take heed that this Child, so soon as sufficiently instructed, be brought to the Bishop to be confirmed by him?

Answer

I will, God being my helper.
