What is "believer's baptism"?


Some churches baptize babies and children who aren't old enough to place their own faith in Jesus, where their parents take vows on their behalf.  In this congregation we encourage that parents dedicate their young children to the Lord, and we have a special service for this called Dedication of Children.
While children who are very young can begin to trust Jesus and have a growing spiritual life, we have found it is best to wait until children are older before they are baptized. This way, when they look back on their baptism in later years, they can see it as a genuine act of commitment and faith.
