Infant Baptism and Dedication
At Orchard Hill, we practice both baptism and dedication for children. Parents can choose, based on your own theological conviction, whether to have your child baptized or dedicated.
Baptism for children is celebrated through sprinkling as a sign and seal of a Covenant Relationship, including the child in the Covenant Community of God. Baptism is a means of extending grace with the hope that saving faith will follow as the child grows and matures in their own relationship with God. Parents, family members, friends and the congregation make vows to raise the child until the day that the child can make his or her own profession of faith in Jesus Christ.
In Dedication, parents bring their children before the Lord as an act of worship and commitment – a time to publicly declare a desire to raise children in such a way that they come to a point of personal faith.
Children who are baptized or dedicated as infants or young children may choose, when they are older, to be baptized through the sacrament of Believer Baptism.
