Jude's Dedication

 Each Mother's Day (most of the time) new babies are dedicated at our church, Hillcrest Baptist Church. Parents who choose, may go through a brief ceremony where we dedicate our child(ren) to the Lord. We take an oath to spiritual strive to lead our children to Christ and raise them in the admonition of the Lord and His Word. We believe that a christian home, and even education, is a strong foundation for life, with the ultimate goal of salvation. This service is in no way related to salvation, which we believe comes from faith Jesus Christ and His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins and His triumphal resurrection on the third day. We believe salvation comes by grace through faith and not works of any kind on our part. We are so thankful for each and every child that the Lord has chosen, and will choose, to give our family.

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
    the fruit of the womb a reward. 
 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
    are the children of one's youth. 
 Blessed is the man
    who fills his quiver with them!
~Psalm 127:3-5
