Family Dedication is a moment that leads to movement in the lives of families. It is not just about one day, but about a decision to raise children in the ways of God that guides them for a lifetime.
Before you start the process, please look through these frequently asked questions.
We believe that parents play a huge role in modeling for their children what it means to love and follow Christ. So we celebrate when parents decide that they want to partner with Soul City Church in raising their child to love and follow Jesus. If your household has been actively involved in the life of Soul City Church, then Family Dedication may be a good next step for you. Ultimately, a Family Dedication celebration will be more meaningful if Soul City feels like home and if you are fully invested in what God is doing here. (ex: you are in a transforming relationship with Jesus, are connected in community through a small group, serving on a volunteer team & giving consistently to the mission of the Church)
No, Family Dedication is not a sacrament. It does not impart salvation to a child. We believe that salvation comes only when one makes a choice from their own heart to invite Jesus into their life, to forgive their sins, and lead their life. Family Dedication is a celebration of the parents’ choice to raise their child in the ways of God and to partner with the Church. Once a child is old enough to understand and make this decision on their own, we celebrate and walk them through a process to prepare for baptism.
