In the Bible we see that Jesus’ parents dedicated Him to the Lord (Luke 2:22–40), and He was later baptized as an adult (Matthew 3:16–17).
We understand that some churches practice “baptism of confirmation” for children. This ceremony is intended to be a commitment between the parents and God on the behalf of the child. The parents promise to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his or her own personal confession of Christ. This custom began about 300 years after the Bible was completed and is different from the biblical examples of new believers being baptized to publicly profess their faith in Jesus.
At Purpose Church we offer an opportunity for parents to commit to rasing their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his or her own decisions. This is a time to celebrate new life and allow us to pray blessing over your family. To schedule a baby dedication, please complete the Baby Dedication Registration Form.
