Before you were born I set you apart
We believe that every child is a gift from God! Dedicating your child is a way for you as a parent to make a public commitment before God, family, and friends to raise your child and nurture them according to God’s purpose and plan.

Dedicate Your Child
What is the difference between infant baptism and child dedication?
We practice child dedication based on scriptural examples of parents dedicating their children to the Lord:
“So now I give him to the Lord, for his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.” And he worshipped the Lord there. (1 Samuel 1:28)
When the time of their purification according to the Law of Moses had been complete, Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord. (Luke 2:22)
While we call this ceremony Child Dedication, it is actually a commitment on the part of the parent to raise their child in the ways of the Lord. Our role as the church is to support you in that endeavor.
