What Is Child or Baby Dedication?
A Child Dedication is a ceremony where Christian parents give thanks for and dedicate their child to God.
It involves making a promise to the Lord before your family, friends and the church congregation to do everything within your power to raise the child in a godly way. A commitment before the Lord to submit your child to God’s will and to raise him or her according to God’s Word and ways.
Child Dedication is not infant baptism
Baby Dedication does not include baptism. We believe that baptism is meant to take place publicly when a person is old enough to make the personal decision to follow Christ.
As parents, we cannot decide our child’s salvation for them. Each person must make their own decision. We can, however, lay a foundation of teaching and example that helps the child be ready to make that decision when the time comes.
