Baby Dedication

“Then were there brought unto him little children that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19: 13-14)

Children are a gift from God (Psalm 127:3). There is no greater moment in time when this truth is more realized by parents than at the birth of their child. Understanding this truth, we believe that presenting and dedicating a child to God should be as natural to Christian parents as burping a baby after he is fed.

Baby Dedication is a scriptural practice. We read in the Gospel according to Luke (Luke 2:22-33) that the parents of Jesus dedicated Him unto the Lord on the eighth day as the Law had prescribed (Leviticus 12:1-4). Also in the Gospel according to Matthew (Matthew 19: 13-14), we read about how people brought their little ones to Jesus so that He might place His hands on them and pray for them.

Following the scriptural example of Jesus, during our Baby Dedication Service, Pastors Tom and Stef pray and lay hands on each and every child pronouncing the Blessing of God upon their lives. Parents publicly acknowledge God’s ownership of their child and pledge before God and His people to bring up their child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Baby Dedication is held every first Sunday of each month. If you would like to schedule your child for Baby Dedication, click here to register online.
