Variations on the French Reformed Church Baptismal Liturgy

For several decades, variations on a portion of the French Reformed Church baptismal liturgy have been used in PC(USA) congregations. When infants are baptized, the minister addresses the child directly, proclaiming the sure promise of God. The Office of Theology and Worship provides these examples, noting that no single set of words is "right." Pastoral judgment may lead to particular variations. 

Whatever words are used, the pastor should address the child directly, and should strive to speak rather than read.
