BabyD is an opportunity for parents to publicly declare their intent to raise their child in a way that honors God and to give the child the opportunity to eventually have a personal relationship with Jesus. In many ways a child dedication service is truly a "parent dedication" service and it's also a time for family, friends, and our Springcreek volunteers and staff to say we will partner with you as you raise and love your child.
Is this infant baptism? No. We believe that a child must be old enough to understand what it means to put their faith in Jesus Christ before they can be baptized. This event is an opportunity for you as parents to publicly declare that you want to raise your child to develop their own relationship with Jesus Christ.
At what age can a child take part in a Dedication Service? Our primary focus is on children from birth to 18 months. However, we consider each family on an individual basis.
