Frequently Asked Questions:
What is “Dedication”?
Child Dedication is a time for you to publicly declare your commitment to raise your child to know and love Jesus. It’s also a time to welcome grandparents, friends and other relatives who are crucial in supporting you in your journey.
Child dedication is not the same as infant baptism. We believe that baptism is a public declaration of an individual’s decision to follow Christ. Since infants are not capable of making that decision, we reserve baptism for a time when an individual is old enough to understand the decision to accept Christ as Savior.
What is required before parents dedicate their child/children?
Parents must attend an orientation before the Child Dedication, and be ready to publicly commit to the following statements. (Child dedications do not require membership at Christ The Rock.)
- You have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and decided that He will be the center of your lives and home.
- You believe that the Bible is the Word of God, and you regularly read it and obey it.
- You will invest time, energy, devotion and prayer on behalf of your children to help them cultivate a relationship with Jesus.
- You agree that you need the support and guidance of a Christian community to carry out your commitments to God and your children.
What does Christ The Rock believe about baptism and dedication?
We believe that baptism is a public declaration of an individual’s decision to follow Christ. Since infants are not capable of making that decision, we reserve baptism for a time when an individual is old enough to understand their decision to receive Jesus Christ as their Savior. Faith is not passed on to a child through dedicating the child; rather, parents are making a commitment to raise their child in the training and instruction of the Lord with the desire that one day their child will receive Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and choose to be baptized.
When do child dedications happen at Christ The Rock?
Child dedications are part of Christ The Rock weekend services several times a year.
We are here to support you as you face the loss of loved ones. We are available to share the love of Christ, offer practical help, encouragement and support. Call the church office at 920.730.8383 to let us know you need to schedule a funeral.

We share in your happiness as you start to plan your wedding and begin the beautiful adventure of marriage. Our pastors will work with you to plan a ceremony that honors God and matches your dreams for your special day.
The first step to being married by a CTR pastor is completion of our premarital class and mentoring (6-9 months before the wedding). After you register for the class, we will pencil in your wedding date on the church calendar to reserve the building. Your date will be confirmed after successful completion of the premarital class and mentoring, approval from your wedding pastor, and payment of the wedding rental fee. Premarital requirements apply for offsite weddings. Christ The Rock has a “no” wedding reception policy.
