What is a Baby/Child Dedication?
dedication of a child is a voluntary act in which believing parents publicly
present their child and themselves to the Lord as an outward expression of their
commitment to God regarding the raising of this child.
The Baby/Child Dedication Policy below includes:

- Title - "Baby/Child Dedication Policy and Information
- Scripture - "Children are a heritage of the Lord, and the fruit of the womb is His reward!"
- Purpose - It’s
our desire that every child be blessed. A Baby/Child Dedication is a commitment
by the parents and the church to provide opportunity for the child to know and
experience what it means to follow God. For this reason, A Baby/Child
Dedication is defined by the following criteria:
- Why do we do Baby/Child Dedications? - The dedication of a child is a voluntary
act in which believing parents publicly present their child and themselves to
the Lord as an outward expression of their commitment to God regarding the raising
of this child. The parent(s) are essentially committing themselves to raising
this child, with God’s help, in a way that demonstrates an example of Godliness,
discipling according to God’s ways and prayerfully training that child in God’s
teachings until that child can made a decision on his or her own to follow God.
At the time of dedication, the family at [Church Name] is also committing
themselves to participate in raising of this child through our children and youth
programs as well as to encourage this child in such a way as to be a positive
witness and influence so that the child can grow up to one day accept Christ and
live for Him.
