The Pastor’s Word – Baby Dedication
Category : Uncategorized
This morning we will celebrate the dedication of two babies by their parents to God. At Grace, we don’t christen children, we dedicate them. The main difference is whose responsibility it is to keep the child under the banner of Christ.
In faith traditions that christen, this is considered baptism. At GUCC, we don’t baptize infants or very young children. We have adopted an African Tradition of dedicating the life of a child to God and committing the parents to raise them in that way until they are old enough to say they want to be baptized and understand what it means. Let us keep these children and their parents in prayer.
Yours in Faith,
