“Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.” Psalm 127:3
Child dedication is a public statement by parents who want to thank God for their child, entrust them to him, and commit themselves to raise their child to follow God. Parents who dedicate their child to God are acknowledging their role as a loving steward of His gift, and are asking for God’s wisdom and direction in parenting. Dedication is a biblical parenting principle found in both the Old & New Testaments.
When a child is older and able, they can express their own personal faith in Jesus and be baptized. Our purpose for dedicating children is to celebrate the gift they are to their families and the church, and give parents the opportunity to publicly commit to raise their child to be a follower of Christ. It also gives family members, friends, and church family the opportunity to express their commitment to support the parents.
