Now when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were completed, they brought Him to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord. (Luke 2:22)
Why You Should Dedicate Your Child
As a baby, Jesus was presented to God in the temple. We believe that every child born should be presented unto God as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God (Romans 12:1). As a christian and as a believer, dedicating your baby to God – in the House of God, is you presenting your baby to the Almighty and telling God that you put your child in His care because by only Him is all-knowing, all-seeing, and everywhere. These are traits that we as humans do not possess.
What Happens During This Process
Your baby’s dedication in House of Glory will a joyous occasion. The father and mother will sing and dance to the altar with friends and family. Your baby is presented to God, and the baby is prayed for by the Pastor. This prayer is to ask for God’s guidance and protection for the child even as he or she grows up in a world marred with temptations, sin and the presence of evil. The prayer is that your child shall be kept in God’s warm embrace, and shall live a long and productive life on earth.
Who To Contact
If you haven’t, but would like to dedicate your child, please contact the church office, or ask an usher for assistance after the Sunday worship service.
