There are certain occasions in life that we celebrate as milestones - driver's license, graduation, marriage, kids, retirement, etc. At First Assembly, we celebrate Water Baptism and Parent Child Dedication in a big way. Check it out below!
Baptism is simply defined as the outward act of an inward change. First Assembly follows the model laid out by Jesus, which is recorded in the New Testament Gospels, as well as by the Church in Acts. Typically, water baptism will take place during the Sunday morning service, and is one of the most exciting celebrations we have. You are encouraged to invite family and friends to hear your testimony of Christ's work in your life.
Psalm 127 tells us that "children are a heritage from the Lord". Parents have been entrusted with this gift and have a responsibility to raise their children in the “discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Eph 6:4) entrusted with this gift and have a responsibility to raise their children in the “discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Eph 6:4).
Dedication provides an opportunity for you to publicly come before your church family and commit yourself to raise your child in a home that teaches Biblical Truth and honors God. It also provides the church family with an opportunity to commit themselves to walk alongside your family to support, encourage, and minister to your physical and spiritual needs. In addition, we take the time to pray for God's blessing on your family as you begin the lifelong journey of parenthood.
