"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord." -Psalm 127:3

At CCClayton, we do not baptize infants. The Bible teaches that Baptism is reserved for the believer, one who has confessed Jesus as their Lord and Savior. An infant is obviously too young to make that profession of faith. However, we do dedicate our young children to the Lord.

Baby dedications are held during our 11 a.m. service on Sundays as acknowledgement that we receive our children from the Lord. It is a time when we then give, or dedicate, our children back to Him. We pray for the child as well as the parents and ask God to give the parents wisdom in raising the child and ask of the Lord that the child would grow to love and serve Him. Later, when the child accepts Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior they are then able to be baptized.

Contact the church office to schedule your baby dedication.
