When you present your child to God in the form of a child dedication, you are publicly recognizing that your child belongs to Him and that you will raise the child in a home committed to experiencing and loving Christ. You are also committed to following biblical principles and teaching the word of God in your home.
Deuteronomy 6:5-7 says, ”And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.”
Proverbs 22:6 says, “ Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
As Christian parents, you are committing to teaching your child the truth found in God’s word and practicing the disciplines of faith. You are making a public declaration that you believe in biblical principles and are practicing them daily.
We would love to talk with you on the steps you need to take to participate in a child dedication service.
