Article 55 — Baptism of adults

Adults who have not been baptised shall be grafted into the Christian church by holy baptism upon their public profession of faith.

Adults present themselves to be baptised. Therefore the administration thereof is preceded by their public profession of faith.

The revised Church Order of our Dutch sister-churches has here an addition that says (in our translation):

They are therefore called to celebrate the Lord’s Supper and shall promise to do so when they are baptised.

Our churches have left this sentence out of their Church Order, apparently because there are no difficulties in this respect among us.
