Baby dedication

We dedicated Olivia at church this past Sunday. Even with all the craziness of the night before we managed to all get there on time and behave through it all. Several people have asked me why we dedicate a baby and not baptize. In short and oversimplified-, we as baptist believe that 1. Baptism is part of your profession of faith and does not guarantee that you will go to heaven.  2. That if an infant dies before the age of accountability (when they can make their own decision to accept Christ) God’s grace extends to them and they go to heaven. 

So we dedicate our children before the church and the Lord promising to raise our children up in the ways of the Lord with the help of the church behind us.
