BABY DEDICATION INFORMATION
A child is a God-given trust (Psalm 127:3), and Baby Dedication is a ceremony that signifies your commitment to uphold that trust. It is an event that symbolizes your pledge to raise your child in a Christian home and church where he or she can come to know, love, and serve Jesus. It also signifies a commitment by the people of First Assembly of God to provide a loving, biblical community that supports and prays for your family.
Baby Dedication at First Assembly is not the same as infant baptism. We believe that baptism is a public statement of faith that can be made only by someone who has personally believed in Christ. Infants cannot make a personal decision to believe in Jesus. Older children, however, can make that personal decision, and we offer baptism for those children.
If you have trusted in Christ as your Savior, you are invited to present your child in Christian dedication to the Lord. While parents often dedicate their children while they are young, you may dedicate your child at any age.
In order to participate in Baby Dedication, you must either be a member of our church, serve on one of our volunteer teams, or get expressed permission from one of the pastoral staff. We feel that these criteria are important as a first step for you as parents to understand what we believe and for us to truly be able to partner with you in the spiritual development of your child. If you would like to become a member of First Assembly of God, please Contact Us and ask for membership information. For more information on serving as a volunteer Click Here.
