The issue of baptism has been a hot topic which has caused much division and hard words in the church. There are fine dedicated Christians on both sides of this debate.
Most of the Reformers did hold to Covenant Baptism of children of believing parents. Both Dr. Martin Luther and John Calvin noted that it would be better if baptism were done by full immersion, as the early Church practiced. They also held that a person who was converted from an unbelieving background should be baptized on their own confession of faith. However, generally speaking, as the society granted citizenship on the basis of infant baptism, they recognised that they could not disrupt this long-established practice at that critical time in history - while the Church was facing a fight for its life against the Holy Roman Empire and the Catholic church.
