What is dedication of children? Dedication of children allows parents or guardians an opportunity to devote their child to the Lord with the support of the church family. A child does not become a Christian through this process, for all are saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8). A child will become a Christian when he or she personally places their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
As parents or guardians, you will first be dedicating yourselves before the Lord as those who will do your best to raise their child in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Deuteronomy 11:19). You will also be dedicating your child to the Lord by acknowledging that your child really belongs to the Lord and has been entrusted to you for his or her care and development. You will then be able to share a few words of your hopes and dreams for your child.
This will be a blessed time that the God will use mightily in your family in the days to come. We look forward to sharing this opportunity with you.
