Jeremiah's First Birthday and Dedication

Home Video, Jeremiah's First Birthday and Dedication from Jeremy Gerdes on Vimeo.

This is a Home Video of our boys First Birthday party and Dedication Child dedication is not the same as infant baptism. We believe that baptism is a public statement of faith that can be made only by someone who has personally believed in Christ. Infants cannot make a personal decision to believe in Jesus. A child is a God-given trust (Psalm 127:3). Our child dedication was a ceremony that signified a commitment to uphold that trust. It was an event that symbolized a pledge to raise our child in a Christian home and church where he can come to know, love, and serve Jesus. It also signifies a commitment by the people of our christian community to provide a loving, biblical community that supports and prays for our family.
