Baptism Weekend

Dedication Services

November 25th - November 26th, 2017

What Is Child Dedication? A Child Dedication service is an opportunity for parents to publicly declare their intent to raise their child in a way that honors God and also give the child the opportunity to eventually have a personal relationship with Jesus. In many ways a "child dedication" service is truly a "parent dedication" service, as parents publicly declare to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his own personal confession of Christ. This means a parent cannot present themselves for dedication if they are living with someone with whom they are not married. The Biblical definition of marriage is one man and woman.

If your heart is in agreement with the purpose and the motive of a Child Dedication, then we invite you to participate. We consider this a sincere promise to God that flows out of your commitment to Jesus Christ.

How does Child Dedication differ from baptism? Child Dedication is not infant baptism. It does not indicate or assure salvation. While baptism or christening are a significant rite of passage for infants in a variety of faiths, we believe the Bible teaches that baptism is reserved for those who have already made a personal commitment to Jesus Christ, and are old enough to grasp the role of baptism as an outward symbol of their faith.
