Meaning of Beulah

The name Beulah is of Hebrew origin means married. The Prophet Isaiah explains this name by stating that Jerusalem will no longer be called Azubah (Forsaken) and her land Shemamah (Desolate), but Jerusalem will be called Hephzibah (My Delight Is In Her) and her land Beulah (Married), “for the Lord delights in you, and your land will be married” (62:4).

 

Child dedication

The Christian Dedication of children is a ceremony in which believing parents, and their chosen God-parents, publicly submit a child to the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ. They recognize the child as a gift from God and accept that the stewardship responsibility of parenthood requires that they do everything within their power to raise the child in a godly way, prayerfully until he or she can make a decision on his or her own to follow Christ. It includes the responsibility to instruct the child in the ways of the Lord, exposing the child to the community of Christians and personally living a god-fearing life before the child. (Deuteronomy 6:6-7; Proverbs 22:6; Luke 2:25-28)

At Beulah Tabernacle, we believe in the sanctity of human life. Individuals who are interested in having their child(ren) dedicated should ask the ushers for details.

 

Pre-marital Counseling

Christian Marriage is more than a contract. It is a sacred covenant between a man and a woman in which the two become one flesh. At the heart of God’s design for marriage is companionship and intimacy. It is the only God ordained union that allows for the full expression of the uniqueness of the man and the uniqueness of the woman. According to Genesis, marriage was instituted by God in the Garden of Eden. In the New Testament marriage is a revealed mystery, with the husband and wife relationship illustrating the relationship between Christ and the church.  One of the best ways to insure success in this sacred institution is to prepare for it through sound biblical instruction.  (Genesis 2:23-25, Matthew 19:4-6; Ephesians 5:22-33; Hebrews 13:4)
