We want to assist you, as well as your child, in understanding baptism before your child desires to be baptized. This workbook is a tool you use, with your child, to help them understand what baptism is and if they are ready to be baptized.
At Bridge Bible Church we believe children are a heritage and gift from God (Psalm 127:3). Therefore, we offer families an opportunity to publicly recognize each child as a gift from the Lord and dedicate him/her to God’s purposes. With this gift comes the responsibility to raise children according to the principles found in the scriptures. This public dedication is when parents, along with other family and friends, dedicate themselves to this high calling. We believe the body of Christ is called to come alongside families and assist them in loving and educating their children. We commit together to “train a child in the way he should go …” (Proverbs 22:6). Child dedication is not the means of salvation and eternal life in heaven for any child. Children have the opportunity to accept the free gift of eternal life when they are old enough to understand sin, forgiveness, and their need for a Savior. Until that time, we believe children are safe in God’s grace.
