2 About Your Dedication
  • At Faith Christian Family Church, we dedicate children rather than having them baptized or christened. Why?

    We believe that baptism is by total immersion in water. Matthew 3:16, Acts 8:38 We believe that baptism is an act of obedience that follows a decision for Christ and a confession of faith. This would require a person to be of an age to hear, understand, and respond to the gospel.

    Acts 2:41, Acts 18:8 we see examples of children dedicated to the Lord or presented to him in a formal service.

    These examples are:
    Samuel - 1 Samuel 1:11, 22
    Jesus – Luke 2:21-24

    The definition for dedicate is to set apart and consecrate to a deity (God) or to a sacred purpose (a life lived for God). To dedicate is to devote wholly and earnestly oneself to a person or purpose.

    Therefore, when we dedicate our children, we as parents are dedicating ourselves to God in our role as parents and dedicating our children to Him before the congregation of believers. Dedicating children is a special and joyful time of celebration for our church family. Children are a gift from God!

    Psalm 127:3
