Q: What is a baby blessing?
A: Baby blessing is the act of giving back to God the gift He has given to parents. It is an act of worship, thanksgiving, dependence, trust and commitment. The practice of 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).
We recognize that salvation only comes to a child through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Therefore, it is not passed on to a child through baby blessing. Parents commit to raise their children by modeling godly principles with the desire that one day they will receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
Q: How do I schedule my baby’s blessing?

Q: Do I need to be a member of your church to have my baby blessed?
A: You do not have to be a member of ChristianTabernacle to have your baby blessed.
Q: If I am a single parent, may I still have my baby blessed?
A: Absolutely! A parent’s marital status has no bearing on the baby being dedicated to the Lord.
