Baby Dedications are a wonderful time for families to come before the church body to acknowledge that babies are a great gift from God! Parents are asking for prayers and encouragement as they desire to raise their children according to God’s standards in the Bible.

The act of dedicating a child to God was a common practice in Old and New Testament times. As believers in Christ, we dedicate children for many of the same reasons because it is:

  • An opportunity for parents to acknowledge God’s incredible blessing of children as a gift from God. (Psalm 127:3)
  • A formal recognition that the child belongs to God. (Psalm 24:1)
  • A public commitment on the part of the parents and body of Christ to teach God’s Word and encourage them in the spiritual development. (Deut. 6:5-7)
  • A challenge for parents to raise and discipline their children according to God’s standards. (Ephesians 6:4)
