Infants in the church?

“If children are called to be part of the covenant people, how may they enter it except by baptism, which is, according to universal Church confession, the way of entry into the Church? But if they are not, we are in danger of a seriously impoverished view of the Church, that it is only for those who are of the ‘age of reason': adult or near adult believers who have qualified themselves for membership by virtue of a particular experience or decision.” (Colin E. Gunton, “Baptism and the Christian Community”)
