Baby Dedication or Baptism is a special time to thank God for the precious gift of your child. Dedication is also an opportunity to publicly declare your intentions to raise your child in a Christian home. Finally, dedication at Compass Church is a family time when parents commit themselves to abiding by biblical principles and raising their children according to God’s standards. Not only are you dedicating your child to God, but you are also dedicating yourselves as parents to Christ and the church. You are committing yourselves to maintaining a Christian home in which Christ is honored and the Word of God is held in reverence.
