Proverbs 22:6 says, “Dedicate your children to God and point them in the way that they should go, and the values they’ve learned from you will be with them for life.” We are excited that you have shown interest in having your child dedicated at Victory Christian Center Coitsville Campus! We believe in the power of speaking blessing and purpose in the life of your child. Our Child Dedication service is designed to bless and pray over infants and children based on the choice that the parents make on behalf of the child, to dedicate their child back to God. Here at Victory Christian Center we do not practice infant baptism, as we believe water baptism is for those old enough to choose baptism as an expression of their personal faith in Christ.
By taking part in dedicating your child to God, you are committing to raise your child according to God’s word and purpose for them. It is up to you as a parent to take the lead in helping your child build a strong spiritual foundation as they grow, setting a Godly example and helping your child along their journey with God. A life lived according to God’s Word brings nothing but the best for you, your marriage, and your children. As a parent, you do not have to be ‘perfect’ but simply willing to live your life according to God’s word.
With this in mind, in order to participate in our public, Sunday morning dedications, a living situation/lifestyle that honors God is required.
1. Single parent living alone or with family (1 Cor. 6:17-20, 7:8-9; 32-38)
2. Legal marriage between a man and a woman (Gen. 2:18-24, Mark 10:6-9)
Should you currently be in a situation not designated above and still desire to dedicate your child, other options are made available as it is our desire to see all children dedicated to God. Please contact Shana Timblin for more information on these options. Our hope is to be a part of your family’s success, both personally and spiritually. We look forward to partnering with your family on your faith journey!
“Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. [...] And he took them up in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them.” Mark 10:14-16
