I am a Reformed Baptist who is close to converting to Reformed Paedobaptism/Presbyterianism. I am working through the implications of paedobaptist theology pretty much on my own, as I have a Baptist family and Church. I am wondering what the significance of infant baptism is for union with Christ and the church as the body of Christ. From what I am reading it seems paedobaptism believes that baptism signifies union with Christ, as Baptists believe. Does that mean that infants in the church are "in Christ" and part of His body, and if so how does that work with passages about the Spirit giving spiritual gifts to the church, etc? I have always understood "in Christ" to refer to salvation. But as I have come to a different understanding of the covenants/baptism, I'm wondering how all of this applies to these passages in the new testament. I might be asking a dumb question, but I'm just unsure as I trudge through a transitional time theologically.
