Baby Dedications

 

Congratulations on the birth of your new baby! We want to be your strongest supporters and trusted guides as you raise your child to know what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Dedicating your child is a commitment to train, teach and be a godly example to your family.

Introduction


God is a God of purpose. The family was the first institution created by God between a man and a woman. Family & Baby Dedication is the act of giving back to God what belongs to Him (I Samuel 1:27-28). We believe, according to God’s Word, that God’s plan for marriage is for a man and a woman to leave and cleave and become one flesh in a covenant relationship (Genesis 2:18, 21-24). This marriage relationship then opens the door to fellowship and intimacy to produce a godly seed (Malachi 2:15). This seed, your child, depends totally upon his/her mother and father to sustain life. The Dedication Service is a decision made by the parents or parent of the child, and not by the child. Dedication is a commitment to God by the parents or parent to train, teach, and be a godly example of Biblical principles for their child and to trust in God and be thankful for this blessing. Therefore, we only dedicate the child/children of married couples (a man and a woman) or a single parent (not living with someone outside of marriage) who are committed to God in the development of their child and who are willing to walk in obedience to God’s Word.
