parents partnering with God as they raise their children
Child Dedication is an opportunity for you to actively dedicate yourself before God, to provide everything necessary for the growth of your child physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually. The importance of raising your child in the discipline of Biblical principles and the instruction of the Lord is written in:
Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 (NIV)
Ephesians 6:4 (NIV)
Calvary Assembly defines child dedication as the parental willingness to partner with God and the Church to raise your child. We believe dedication is not a sacrament; it cannot impart grace or salvation to your child. Salvation only comes through Jesus Christ as each person recognizes his or her sinfulness and receives forgiveness and eternal life through Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. The scriptural root for this type of dedication is found in 1 Samuel 1:27-28.
