What is a Baby Dedication?
A baby dedication is not a baptism. We do not baptize infants. A baby dedication does not ensure that the baby will make it to heaven. The Bible says that a baby is a blessing from God. When you decide to dedicate your son or daughter, you are acknowledging the awesome responsibility God has given you in raising your child. A baby dedication is a ceremony that expresses your desire as parents to raise your son or daughter in the ways of the Bible and to ask God to use your child for His purpose.
Why should I dedicate my infant?
Mary and Joseph took baby Jesus to the temple to be dedicated to God. As followers of Christ, we want to also make this public declaration to your family and your church. It is invaluable to be able to tell children as they are growing up that they belong to Jesus and that you have asked God to use them in a formal declaration.
What if my child is older and I have not dedicated him/her as an infant?
