The Bible instructs us to dedicate our children to the Lord. By dedication, we mean that the child is presented before the church and prayed for by the pastor. Jesus was presented to the Lord in the temple, and we follow His example (Luke 2:22-28).
As parents, we present our child, declaring that we are going to raise him or her in the Lord. We ask the church to help us by praying for our child and for our commitment to be godly parents. Dedication is not baptism. It is simply presenting our child to be prayed for and blessed by the pastor and the church.
