This weekend at LIFE Church, we witnessed the Baby Dedication of baby Jackson Ramon Smith. He is the son of Jonathan and Tia Smith. A Baby dedications at LIFE Church is a ceremony that celebrates the commitment of parents, relatives and the church family, assuring that a Christian child will be raised up according to God’s word and in God’s ways.
Because Christian parenting is such a sacred responsibility, the dedication ceremony is meant more for parents and family than for the child. In dedicating their child, parents acknowledge their God-given position as stewards of what really belongs to God and rightfully should be “dedicated” back to him. Their promise is to do everything possible to raise their child in a godly way until the child reaches the age where capable of making a decision on their own to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
This weekend's baby dedication ceremony was a reminder to the parents, family and church family of their awesome responsibility to this wonderful heritage from the Lord.
