At New Life Church, we place a high value on children. Why, because Jesus did. We believe they are a gift from God the Father. As a church, we want to love children on His behalf, and to come alongside parents to support and equip them to be the spiritual leader in their home.
We believe child dedications are for the public declaration of parents to raise their child to know, to trust and to help develop a growing relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. It is a commitment to pray for, to love, teach and direct their child, in the truth of Scripture through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Why do we have dedications for children instead of baptisms?
We believe that baptism is an outward expression of an inward confession. Baptism is a personal decision of the heart to surrender your life to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Young children under the age of accountability are unable to declare this change. We baptize children at the age of eight and invite parent(s) and child to participate in Baptism Class together.
