|Baptism||Baptism is the sign of the new covenant. "Baptism is the circumcision of the Christians."||In Zwingli's earlier writings he described baptism as an initiation and compared it to the initiation into an army. Because this view was more consonant with believer's baptism, a belief he briefly held, he emphasized baptism as a covenant in his later writings.|
