Child Dedication

First Baptist Church believes the Bible teaches that baptism is only for those who have trusted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior at the age of accountability (Acts 16: 30-33), and therefore do not baptize babies.

However, periodically throughout the year during Sunday services we do provide opportunities for your infant/toddler/young child to be dedicated to the Lord.  It is a time when you as parents present yourselves to the Lord and commit to bring your child up in the “Nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Eph. 6:4).  This dedication is also an indication of your desire for your child to one day make a personal decision to trust Jesus Christ and to follow the Lord in a life of service.

If you would like to dedicate your child, please contact Children’s Ministry by email at or phone 685-4821 x107.
