Agape Church, Baby Dedication

Baby Dedication

Agape Church 11AM

Throughout the New Testament, the Bible teaches that baptism is a public expression of worship symbolizing the new life we have when we follow Jesus. In the Bible we see that Jesus’ parents dedicated Him to the Lord (Luke 2:22–40), and He was later baptized as an adult (Matthew 3:16–17).

We understand that some churches practice “baptism of confirmation” for children. This ceremony is intended to be a commitment between the parents and God on the behalf of the child. The parents promise to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his or her own personal confession of Christ. This custom began about 300 years after the Bible was completed and is different from the biblical examples of new believers being baptized to publicly profess their faith in Jesus.

With a heart to follow this Biblical model, at Agape we provide opportunities for baby dedication. If you are interested in participating in this special ceremony, please contact Administrative Pastor Nece Hill at the church office at 601.342.0404 or RSVP HERE or at the Connection Point in the lobby..
