Ken Wytsma :: Why do you do child dedication?

  • “Whenever something belongs to God, it’s dedicated to God,” says Ken Wytsma, Founder of The Justice Conference and President of Kilns College. “It’s holy.” In I Corinthians 7, Paul says that children of believing parents, or even one believing parent, are holy. “You’ve got Paul literally saying that it’s not just that kids are good and God likes kids, but that kids are holy, meaning they belong to him, they’re set aside unto him.” When parents are believers, they are in a covenantal relationship with God, and he is at the center of their household, working with them and through them and loving their kids. “There’s something about the kids in this church. There’s something exciting about presenting them to God as kids that he wants to call unto himself.”
