Baby Dedications

Baby Dedications

“Children are a gift from the Lord;
they are a reward from him.” – Psalm 127:3 (NLT)

Our babies are a blessing to us!  As Christian parents, it is very important for us to bring our children to church & participate in a Baby Dedication Ceremony.  We thank God for parents who are willing to dedicate their lives to the raising of their children in the ways of the Lord.  As parents, we must be vigilant from earliest childhood to stress the importance of God’s presence in our lives.  This must be done not only by our words, but by our actions.  Parents must model their Christian life before their family.

“Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.” – Proverbs 22:6 (NLT)

At Solid Rock, we have baby ‘dedications’ or ‘blessings’ & in place of ‘baptisms.’  A baby dedication is a ceremony which includes praying for God’s blessings to be upon both the baby & the parents.  Water baptism is to follow when a person is able to understand their sin & make a choice to ask Jesus for the forgiveness.  Since infants are unable to do this, we do not believe it is necessary to baptize infants in water.  God honors a child’s purity until they reach the age of accountability & can understand the meaning of salvation and personal sin.
