Today..Not..Tomorrow – Transforming The Church For All Ages

Jesus Loves Little Children

We believe that children are a gift from God. When we dedicate our children to God it is a public declaration of that belief, and our commitment to set a good example for our children of how we follow Jesus.

The Bible tells of people "bringing babies to Jesus" (Luke 18:15). The Lord's inner circle of disciples rebuked the parents for bringing the little ones. But what did Jesus do?

When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these..." And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and bless them. (Mark 10:14,16).

Dedicating a child acknowledges God's sovereignty not only over the child, but also Mom and Dad. Parents present their child before God and His people asking for grace and wisdom in carrying out their responsibilities. Parents also come praying that their child might one day trust Jesus Christ as Savior for the forgiveness of sin.

The Promises of God

  • God's blessing and protection (God's angel) for the children. (Mat 18:10)
  • Children of believers have power to defeat their enemies (the devils) in the name of Jesus. (Ps. 8:3 & Ps. 139:16)
  • Whoever takes the position of a child = the greatest in His kingdom. (Mat 18:4)
  • Whoever welcomes/loves children welcomes Lord Jesus. (Mat 18:5)
  • Whoever causes these children to stumble will be punished. (Mat 18:6)

How to Join The Child Dedication?

Before the actual ceremony, it is crucial that parents to join the counselling session to know about the meaning of dedication. The best passage for discussion is Deuteronomy 6:4-7. First, it commands parents to love God; if they truly wish for their child to one day love and follow God, their lives must be an example. This is a good time to query parents about their own personal relationship with Christ. We provide regular opportunities for you to dedicate your child during designated church services. Please register by submitting the below form to the church secretariat latest by one week before the child dedication event.
