We believe children are a gift from God.  As parents, being a part of a loving church family can help you raise your children in the ways of the LORD.  We see throughout scripture the practice of parents presenting their children to the LORD for God's blessing upon their family and to dedicate their child unto the LORD (Luke 2:22, Mark 10:13).  Although this act does not ensure the salvation of the child, it is a powerful declaration before the LORD and the broader church family of the parents' intent to train and teach their children to follow Jesus.
