Child Dedications

We believe the practice Baby Dedication.


What Is Baby Dedication?

A Baby Dedication is a ceremony in which believing parents, and sometimes entire families, make a commitment before the Lord to submit a child to God's will and to raise that child according to God’s Word and God's ways.

The practice of Baby Dedication is rooted in this passage found in Deuteronomy 6:4-7: "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise."

Responsibilities Involved in Baby Dedication

Christian parents who dedicate a child are making a promise to the Lord before the church congregation to do everything within their power to raise the child in the godly way, prayerfully, until he or she can make a decision on his or her own to follow God.

Parents who make this vow, or commitment, are instructed to raise the child in the ways of God and not according to their own ways. Some of the responsibilities include teaching and training the child in God’s Word, demonstrating practical examples of godliness, disciplining the child according to God's ways, and praying earnestly for the child.

An Example of Baby Dedication in Scripture

Luke 2:22-24 -Jesus Is Presented in the Temple

22 Then it was time for their purification offering, as required by the law of Moses after the birth of a child; so his parents took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord. 23 The law of the Lord says, “If a woman’s first child is a boy, he must be dedicated to the Lord.”[a] 24 So they offered the sacrifice required in the law of the Lord—“either a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons.”[b]
