Baby Dedication Signup Form

Dedicating a child acknowledges God's sovereignty not only over the child, but also Mom and Dad. Parents present their child before God and His people asking for grace and wisdom in carrying out their responsibilities. It is a symbolic ceremony for parents, family, the child (even if they do not remember it), and the church. A charge to the parents, family, and congregation are given, and a prayer of blessing is given.

Why Baby Dedication?
  • Deuteronomy 6:4-7 and Proverbs 22:6 - Parents are instructed to teach their children God's commands.
  • Luke 2:22-24 - Jesus is dedicated.

how does it work?

Baby and Child dedication is a moment during our worship service when parents and family will come forward and commit their child to the Lord and submit their child to God’s ways and will. It is the act of giving back to God the gift He has given to the parents. Our pastor and church will stand with you, making the commitment to offer prayer and support for you and your family.

  • At the baby dedication, the parent(s) and family bring the child to the platform, where a pastor speaks words of instruction and prays over the child and family.
  • Baby or Child Dedication is not salvation.
  • The Bible is clear that salvation comes only through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, so the child must make that decision on his or her own.
  • We do not sprinkle, christen, or baptize babies.
  • Water baptism is a decision that each person should make individually after salvation.
