Is Your Child Ready For Baptism/Christening?

Baptism/Christening is an important step that a believer in Christ takes to share with the world that they are a Christian. As your children see others get baptized, or read about Jesus getting baptized in their Bibles, they may begin to ask if they can get baptized. While this desire is always an occasion to rejoice, it’s important for parents to discern whether or not a child understands and believes the gospel before saying “yes” to this request.

How To Tell If Your Child Is Ready For Baptism/Christening

Of course, there is no system or checklist that you can go through to tell whether or not your son or daughter is ready to be baptized. But here are a few questions to help you think and pray through as you consider whether or not to baptize your children:

  • Whose idea was it to get baptized? If your child thinks that you want them to get baptized, they may do it just to please you. If your child wants to get baptized without any prompting from you, that can be evidence of the Holy Spirit calling them to get baptized.
  • Does your child understand the gospel? Do they understand what sin is, and that the penalty for sin has been taken by the death of Jesus? Do they understand that there’s no amount of good works they can do to please God, but that Jesus was perfect on their behalf? Do they understand that Jesus’s resurrection means that there is no more penalty for sin to be paid, and that we can live with God forever through faith in him?
     
  • Is there evidence of the Holy Spirit at work in your child’s life? When a person is brought to faith in Jesus, the Holy Spirit comes to live in them and begins to change them to make them look more like Jesus. Do you see conviction and repentance of sin? Do you see a love for God and His Word, the Bible?
     
  • Do you have others that you can process this through with? Obviously, your spouse should be the first person that you pray and discuss this with. But think about involving others as well. It’s a safe bet that your friends and you small group would love to pray with you about this important decision. Your church elders and staff would also be great to talk with.

The Importance of Elegant Christening Invitations

Each year, a large number of parents make the decision to have their child christened. Many times, a christening occurs when the child is still an infant, but not always. A christening can occur at any point in an individual’s life. No matter when an individual is christened, they are undergoing an important ceremony.

A christening ceremony can be held a number of different ways. Almost all churches will hold a special ceremony. Friends, family, or close co-workers may all be invited to a christening. In addition to inviting guests, private christenings are also an option. Whether a ceremony is private or not, a reception will likely follow.

If you are a parent who is planning a christening with your local church, you must make a number of decisions. If you decide to invite guests to the ceremony or host a reception, you will have to inform them of the event. This is most often done by sending out christening invitations. Christening invitations are important because they notify guests of this important event.

A christening is an important event in a person’s life. It is only fitting that this important event be celebrated with elegant invitations. To obtain elegant christening invitations, many parents shop online for invitations. Elegant christening invitations are most commonly made by professional invitation designers or makers.

When christening invitations are sold online, they are most commonly sold in sets. Christening invitation sets usually include an elegant invitation and a matching envelope. One of the reasons why parents order christening invitation sets from a professional is because many allow their clients to custom order their invitations. This means that, in addition to ordering an elegant christening invitation set, a personal touch can be applied.

When it comes to ordering a christening invitation set from a professional, there are many new parents who are concerned with price. Many of the custom made items sold today are expensive; therefore, many assume that christening invitation sets would be as well. It is true that some christening invitation sets could be expensive, but not all are. With a little bit of time, research, and price comparison it is possible to find christening invitation sets at a discounted price.

Professionally designed and elegant christening invitations are also important for memories. There are many parents who create scrapbooks or other family projects for their children. A christening invitation is likely to be included in a family scrapbook. An elegant christening invitation would look amazing in a family scrapbook, alongside beautiful christening pictures.

If you are a parent who is preparing your child for a christening, you are encouraged to examine all of the different types of christening invitations. After a large amount of consideration, you may be able to see the benefits of obtaining an elegant and professionally designed christening invitation.

at an affordable price.

How to Capture Memorable Religious Christening Videos

Written by Andy Ross


Christening is an important occasion meant to baptize a young member in the family. Needless to say, christening corresponds to a very important moments in the life of every Christian individual. The one moment that he/she would want to share with close friends and relatives. Capturing and preserving these moments for lifetime is one of the many preparations that you, as the father/mother, might make for this occasion.

Here are few tips to help you freeze those priceless moments of life.

Choose the Right ‘hand'

First of all, you need to select right person to do the job for you - especially since you'd be busy attending to other guests of the occasion. You can select a skilled video shooter from your locality or Christian social network to ensure quality outputs. Make sure you choose a person, who is capable to take up the responsibility of recording every moment and has no other role in the ceremony.

Another good idea would be to hire a professional who has experience of covering such ceremonies. The professional, in addition to knowing the technical essentials, would also be familiar with the customs and hence the essentials angles and moments to capture.

Some Points to Consider

- The venue must be selected carefully to avoid congestion, as it will degrade the worth of christening video.

- Make suitable lighting arrangements, so that it can contribute towards a wonderful video.

- Ask the lens man to capture every inch of the decoration and record the presence of all your Christian friends and guests in the ceremony.

- Of course, the young one on the route to be baptized is the star of the evening and hence must be given the maximum space in the video.

Sharing the Christening Videos

It is a good idea to share the christening video with all your friends and relatives. A simple and good idea would be to use Christian social networks online, which allow you to share your favorite videos. So, you can add these videos to your profile and share it easily with your near and dear ones.

Religious christening videos help you to add value to the treasure of your baby's childhood memories. These videos are no less than wonderful gifts for your child to cherish, as he or she grows up.

How to Be an Awesome Godfather

Ask what’s expected of you. After you thank the parents for honoring you with their request, ask them what they expect from you as the child’s godfather. Do you need to be at the christening? Are you going to be the child’s spiritual guide or just more of an all around mentor? Are you expected to foster the kid if they should pass on before the child becomes an adult?

What should you do if the parents ask you to take on a religious role but you no longer believe or aren’t very active in their respective faith? It’s a tough situation. On the one hand, you don’t want to seem like a hypocrite by making confessions of faith you don’t really believe, and on the other hand, you don’t want to offend your brother/friend by saying no.

There’s really no cut and dry answer on what one should do. My suggestion would be to thank the parents for the honor, but tactfully explain that you might not be the best person for the job because of your beliefs. Make the suggestion that while you might not/can’t participate in the religious aspect of being a godfather, that you’d be more than willing to take an active role in the child’s life and do all that you can to support the parents in raising him or her. Most parents will appreciate your candor and be grateful for your respect of a religious ceremony that means a lot to them.

Show up to the ceremony (if there is one). If the child is taking part in a bris or christening ceremony and the godfather has a role, be there. It’s always a good idea to be a familiar with your role in the ceremony before you show up. Talk to the parents or the respective religious leader to get the skinny on what you’ll do and say during the ceremony. If the parents aren’t the religious type, but are having some sort of welcoming celebration for their newborn, make an appearance. Make sure you’re dressed appropriately to show your respect for the occasion.

Parents usually have some sort of party after the child’s christening ceremony, and non-religious parents will sometimes have parties to celebrate their child’s birth. It’s customary for the godfather to give a small speech congratulating the couple on the child’s birth, thanking them for the honor of being the child’s godfather, and publicly announcing his support in helping raise the child. It’s sort of like giving a best man speech. So before you go to the party, make sure to have a few words prepared.

Remember important events in your godchild’s life. Mark your godchild’s birthday on your calendar and be sure to send them a card every year. Godfathers usually give a little more money to their godchild at birthdays and Christmas than they do to their other nieces and nephews. It’s not necessary, but that’s been my experience. When your godchild has some sort of success in school or sports, send them a congratulatory card.

Be willing to take on parenting responsibilities if your godchild’s parents die. Traditionally, godparents are the individuals who have the responsibility of fostering a child if both the parents die. In the United States and the United Kingdom this is NOT a legal obligation. If the parents are really serious about you stepping in as the child’s guardian if they die, they’ll need to indicate so in a properly executed will.

Be a mentor. The best thing you can do to be a great godfather is to be a mentor for your godchild. For some men this will mean taking on the traditional role of being a spiritual guide for your godchild. For other men, it may mean being a mentor in other aspects of the child’s life. Either way, do your best to provide a good example to your godchild.

The mentoring relationship you have with your godchild will depend a lot on your geographic proximity to each other. If they’re near by, take them fishing; show them how to work with tools, or visit cultural events in the area. You’ll find moments while taking part in these sorts of activities to pass on some advice and wisdom.

If your godchild lives far away, keep in contact by writing letters, calling them on the phone, or sending an email every now and then.

Another good idea is to give or send your godchildren great books to read. Don’t underestimate the power good literature can have on a child.

Godparent Certificate
By Ginny Morris

Becoming a godparent is a wonderful honor. Typically, parents will choose a male and a female member of the family or the church to represent their child. Although many parents choose two godparents, only one is absolutely necessary.  In addition, one of the godparents needs to be a practicing member of the church.  This is so that he or she can help guide the child's spiritual journey.

Godparents have great responsibility; some of their duties include praying for the child, setting a good example, and also sharing in the faith with the child.  With all of the special obligations that godparents have, it's important to give them something that reminds them of this wonderful honor.

Godparent certificates are an excellent way to celebrate this honor.  The best part about these gifts is that you can customize them to your liking.  You can choose to make your own godparent certificate or simply purchase one that can be professionally made.

If you are interested in making your own certificate, there are many online sites available.  You can download and print
your own certificates right away.  Simply choose the style that you like by clicking on it, and then you will be able to customize it.  You can choose to give each godparent their own certificate, or print off two copies with both of the godparent's names.

Most godparent certificates have similar information on them.  They will post the names of the godparents, the name of the baby
, the date the baptism will take place, and at what church.  Once you have customized all of the information, you can print off the certificate.  For an added touch, you can frame the certificate or place it in a manila folder for safe keeping.
