Children are a gift from God.
A dedication is a celebration, a commitment and a blessing.
This is amazing. First we appreciate where children have come from, they have come from God and we first and foremost recognise that our children belong to God before they belong to you and I. God in his goodness gives children as gifts to parents. Children are not a hindrance or an interruption to our lives but a reward and a real blessing. Parents not only have the awesome responsibility of caring for this gift, but also the wonderful privilege of enjoying the gift.
Because children belong to God and are given by grace as gifts from God, we dedicate our children back to God for his love, protection, care and guidance.
With God’s help, the help of your family and church family, a dedication is a commitment. It’s a commitment with a deep desire that your child may walk in the path of wisdom and an abundant life that Jesus offered. The dedication commitment is:
• to provide your child a Christian home of love and peace,
• to raise your child in the truth of Christian instruction and discipline,
• to encourage your child daily through praise and correction,
• to pray constantly for your child and to
• encourage your child one day to trust Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord
A baby dedication is also an occasion for us to bless your child and to believe for God’s blessing upon their life:
