Baby dedication is a public declaration before God, your church and your family of your commitment as a parent to lead and spiritually nurture your child in such a way that he or she will grow to love God and serve Him and others. This event is not infant baptism. We believe that when someone is old enough to understand what it means to put their faith and trust in Jesus as their personal Savior that they should make that choice for themselves. An infant is not able to understand sin, forgiveness, Christ's sacrifice on the cross for us or what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus. Therefore, baby dedication is about your commitment as a parent to do everything possible to help lead your child into a knowledge of God and a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. You are not required to be an official member of Deliverance Baptist Church to have your child dedicated. However, we encourage you to be sure that your beliefs line up with those of our church so that you can be all-in with your commitment to partner with us as we strive to create every possible opportunity to help introduce your child to their loving Creator!
