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). Here at CCC, we support the commitment between the parents and God on the behalf of the child and provide opportunities for Baby Dedications periodically throughout the year. At this ceremony, 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. To schedule a baby dedication, please contact Emily Gloeckner, our Director of Early Childhood Ministry.
