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.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he’s old, he will not depart from it.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
