Dedicating a child acknowledges God’s sovereignty not only over the child, but also Mom and Dad. Parents present their child before God and His people, asking for grace and wisdom in carrying out their responsibilities. Dedication also expresses the parents’ desire that their child might one day personally trust Jesus Christ as Savior for the forgiveness of sin. Because dedication means committing your child to the Lord and the care of the church, parents themselves need to have made a commitment to Christ before dedicating their child.
At Grace, we believe it is God’s desire that believing parents create homes where God is honored and glorified and where they model love and faith in Jesus Christ. The family is the key place where a child learns and develops his or her understanding of God and His love. Children learn this through the example and teaching of godly parents.
Dedicating a child to God is a public sign that you are seeking to bring your child up in the ways of Christ, and as a community we stand with you in that passion. If you'd like more information, download this brochure.
