Would someone be considered to be a covenant child if both parents were unbelievers, but they were baptized in a Reformed church?

No... how could that be? What "covenant" would the child be associated with? It couldn't be the Covenant of Grace since neither parent is personally and intimately part of it. And what benefits would that child be privileged to since neither parent would nor is able to convey from their hearts the necessity of being reconciled to God through Christ Jesus through repentance and faith? Their prayers would not be heard since they are not God's adopted children and are living in rebellious sin before a God they hate. What "Reformed" church would ever baptize a child of unbelieving parents? scratch1
