Throughout the New Testament, the Bible talks about baptism as an outward expression of an inner decision made to follow Jesus. In the Bible, we see that Jesus' parents dedicated Him to the Lord (Luke 2:22-40), then He was later baptized as an adult (Matthew 3:16-17).
No one has greater potential to impact a child’s spiritual development than their parents. Proverbs 22:6 says: “Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
At Liv It Church, the dedication ceremony is intended to be a commitment between parents and God on behalf of their child. Parents are promising to raise their children in the faith until they are old enough to make their own personal decision to follow Christ.
