Child dedication at Soma
We don’t baptize babies; but we do dedicate them. At Soma, we believe that baptism is a sign of someone who has made a profession of faith in Jesus and demonstrated the fruit of that faith in his or her life – both things that require a person be older.
Instead of baptizing infants, we dedicate our children to God. We don’t believe this creates saving faith in them; but we do it as a proclamation that we’ll raise our kids to one day trust in Christ, and in the hope that God will save our children in the right time. If you’re a member of Soma and you’re interested in having your child dedicated, email Sam Ringo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
