FAQs

How does child dedication relate to salvation?

Dedicating a child does not impart salvation to the child. Salvation is the free gift of God given to someone who by faith trusts in Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord and turns from their sin.

Is child dedication like infant baptism?

Child dedication is also not baptism. Baptism is for believers—those who have already by faith trusted in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins—to publicly identify themselves with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ through the symbolic act of being immersed in water.
