As Christian parents, you have been blessed with the responsibility of raising your child in the ways of our lord. Dedicating your child is making a promise to God and a public commitment to do everything within your power to raise them in a godly way until he or she can make that decision on their own to follow God. Here at Praise Tabernacle Bible Church we believe that building this solid foundation early in your child’s life is of the utmost importance along with training the child in God’s Word, demonstrating an example of godliness and disciplining them according to God’s ways. How Do I Dedicate My Child?
Call the church office and set up an appointment with Pastor Jody’s Assistant.
The Bible teaches that baptism is the immersion in water of a person who has placed their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. If you would like to experience the tremendous joy of obedience to Christ's command, please contact us about this important step in your spiritual journey.

We believe the Scriptures teach that marriage is an institution established by God, and that it is a lifetime commitment. We also believe an understanding of the biblical foundation for marriage is essential for any couple considering marriage. For those requesting Pre-Marriage Counseling or asking to be married we require the following:
Both partners give clear testimony of being born-again believers, who personally trust in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins and for eternal life.
Both partners be scripturally qualified to marry.
Both believing partners be committed to a Christian marriage, as defined in the Bible.
The couple be married by a church an approved Officiant, who holds to the teaching of Scripture.
Both partners be willing to complete our Pre-Marriage Counseling or a attend a Pre-Marriage Counseling program.
The ideal would be to enter into Pre-Marriage Counseling before having made a commitment to one another. In view of the seriousness of the commitment you are considering and the importance of the material to be covered, couples should allow at least four months before their marriage to complete the counseling comfortably.
The church Pre-Marriage Counseling is designed to assist the couple in building a biblical understanding and foundation for their marriage and consists of five basic parts:
The Criteria for Marriage
Christian Marriage I: Basics
Christian Marriage II: A Christian Husband, A Christian Wife
Before Your Marriage
Your Wedding and After
We want to be very clear that going through Pre-Marriage Counseling does not guarantee approval of your marriage. It must be understood that you understand and meet the requirements and qualifications for marriage before approval. After the third session, your Pre-Marriage Counselor will submit his recommendation to you and to the Officiant for final approval.
