Baby dedications

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born, I set you apart. I appointed you as a prophet to the nations. ~ Jeremiah 1:5

What is a baby dedication?

A baby dedication is a wonderful moment in which parents make a public statement of faith to raise their child under God’s grace and wisdom. Dedicating your child to God shows that you recognize your child as a gift from God and you are dedicating yourself to being a godly example to your child. However, baby dedications do not secure salvation, rather it is a symbolic moment of entrusting the child’s life to God’s will. Enjoy just a few Bible verses below to help celebrate the joyous moments of birth and parenting.
