I found the answer I was looking for on an interesting site. One which you Baptist may like.

FAQ On the Reformed Baptist view of Baptism

"6.Q. Is the sacrament of baptism a means of grace according to Reformed Baptist theology?

A. Some Reformed Baptists prefer not to use the term "sacrament" due to some negative historical associations. However, Reformed Baptists fully affirm a Reformed view of the sacraments as a means of grace.

The 1689 Confession is admittedly not as clear on this point as it could be. But Keach's Catechism, which was written to clarify the theology of the Confession, makes it pretty clear:

Q. 95. What are the outward and ordinary means whereby Christ communicates to us the benefits of redemption?
A. The outward and ordinary means whereby Christ communicates to us the benefits of redemption are His ordinances, especially the Word, Baptism, the Lord's Supper and Prayer; all which are made effectual to the elect for salvation. (Rom. 10:17; James 1:18; 1 Cor. 3:5; Acts 14:1; 2:41,42)"

PS: Theres more.

What makes you think I'm a Baptist? What constitutes a Baptist? I don't go around telling people I'm a Baptist. I don't attend a Baptist Church. Why are you calling me a Baptist?

Blimey I wish I'd never asked.

If you'd been a Christian I'd have reminded you of Christ Jesus and likemindedness.

I asked a simple question from something I have been reading. I was genuinely interested in the Baptist angle on this.

Do you think its old age which is making you so grumpy John?

God Bless.

A bit off topic. But can I ask you a question as one of the resident Baptists...
Quote;
"On the one side, calling baptism a “means of grace” distinguishes the
Reformed tradition from Protestants who conceive of baptism as a mere symbol.
Unlike Baptists and Anabaptists who tend to speak of baptism only as an
“ordinance” or a “memorial,” Calvinists have characteristically spoken of baptism
not only as an ordinance but also as a sacrament or a mystery, a rite through
which God applies grace." (Prof R.L.Pratt)

Do you agree with him? How do Baptists connect baptism with grace - or don't you make any connection?
