Researcher Nelson Sulouff has theorized that this may have been made after John's marriage, to match the one his wife has. According to Rev. Frederick Weiser, it was hand drawn by Conad Trentz. Fairview TWP did not exist until 1803, so that was obviously added later, or the entire document may have been created years after the baptism. 

JOHANNES ZULAUF ist von christlichen Eltern geboren worden den 4ten Jenner im Jahr Christi 1792 im Fairview Taunschip, Jorch Caunty in der Provenz Pennilvania in North amerinca, und ihn getauft worden von H.P.

The 1795 Taufshein For  Anna Bender:

Translation:  Two sanctioned in marriage John Bender and his house-wife Elizabeth, a born Kammerer, had a daughter  born into the world by the name of Anna Benderin and in the year of our Lord 1795 on the 18th day  of February at 8'oclock in the evening, in the sign of the waterman.  Baptized by Father Benz the 16th day of Sept 1797.  Witness Peter Kammerer and his wife Katherine, born in in Mt Joy Township, Lancaster County in America in the state of Pennsylvania

While my Name must be held up before men, before God only the Soul is known. He has sealed me in Baptism, a righteous father knowing his child; In his hand he inscribed me, nothing can steal me away.

Research:
John Bender, born abt 1765, married to Elizabeth Kammerer born
abt 1770. They lived in Mt. Joy Twp., Lancaster Co. when their daughter
Anna Nancy Bender was born in 1795. About 1800 this Bender family moved
from Lancaster Co. to then Mifflin Co. (Juniata Co. after 1831). This
relocation is mentioned in FLICKINGER FAMILY HISTORY (p. 745) in Juniata
Co. Historical Soc. Archives. The article states that a pear tree was
"brought by John Bender from Lancaster county about the year 1800"
planted in 1801 at the site of a log house built by John and Sally
Weimer "on the farm north of Limestone Ridge, later known as the
Bossart, Briggs, and William H. Groninger farm."
