Your little bundle of joy dedicated and celebrated
What is a Baby Blessing?
The baby blessing is the act of giving back to God the precious gift He has given to parents. It is an act of worship, thanksgiving, dependence, trust, and commitment in the Lord in front of family, friends, and community—the baby’s village—who all vow to prayerfully support the little one. Baby blessings and baby dedications are joyous occasions. If you and your loved ones are interested in having your little bundle of joy dedicated and celebrated, Rev. Chimere is delighted to be a part of this important step in your familial walk with Jesus. My intent is to come alongside you and your loved ones to help ensure that the baby blessing is an easy and enjoyable process.
The practice of the baby blessing has been modeled throughout the Bible. For example, Hannah brought her long-awaited son Samuel to the priest Eli to dedicate him to the Lord (1 Samuel 1:24-28). Mary and Joseph brought baby Jesus to the temple for His dedication (Luke 2:22-24). The Christian tradition recognizes that salvation only comes to a child through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Therefore, salvation is not passed to a child through baby blessing. The blessing and dedication process is a celebratory commitment of the child to the Lord. Therefore, parents commit to raise their child by modeling godly principles while providing love with the desire that one day he/she will receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
