There is no greater time in the life of a family than when they welcome home a new child. Parents take on an immense responsibility to not only meet the physical and emotional needs of their new child, but also take on the responsibility of meeting their spiritual needs as well. Baby dedication does not equate to salvation. Baby Dedication instead, reflects a desire on the part of the parents and First Baptist Church to partner together and support one another in leading this new child on their spiritual journey.
Parents are the primary spiritual leaders for their children and baby dedication allows parents the opportunity to publically declare to their church family their intentions to rear their child under Christ supervision. As a church family, we also covenant to help guide, encourage, equip and love the family in this process.
Baby Dedications are done throughout the year and can be scheduled through the Preschool Ministries office at 353-1770, ext. 220.
