CHILD DEDICATION

January 16, 2022

Child Dedication is an opportunity to celebrate the gift of children from God. Child dedications is important and acknowledges the God-given responsibility to parents to raise their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). During the dedication, parents will make a commitment before the Lord to raise their children according to God's Word and God's ways. The church is also a partner of the dedication, committing to partner with parents to help instruct by word and example, pray for the children, and pray for the parents.

WHY NOT INFANT BAPTISM?

At MVCC, we believe a person must make a personal committment to Christ as their Savior to be baptized. Therefore, we encourage parents to dedicate their children , praying, witnessing, instructing, and trusting in the Lord to lead their children to a saving faith in Christ.
