Baby Blessing / Dedication–A baby blessing or dedication ceremony is very similar to a christening except there is no baptism included. The dedication ceremony is two-fold. #1–The parents dedicate themselves to the Lord and to His teaching in raising the child. #2–The child is dedicated and given back to the Lord to receive His blessing. The parents, along with godparents, or other family members, promise to set a good example with their own lives for the child. They commit themselves to pray for the child, to teach the child about God and to bring him/her up according to God’s will and God’s way. Then when the child is old enough to make a decision about Jesus, the parents will guide him in that decision to trust Jesus as his Saviour. This is the day every parent prays for and the whole reason for dedicating their child to the Lord.

Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.
Before you were born, I set you apart.
