We take the words of Jesus at face value when He says about the Lord’s Supper, “This is my body” and “This is my blood” (Matt 26:26-29). We believe that Jesus is present in this meal and through it, He delivers for us the gifts of forgiveness for sins and strength for living in His will. Scripture teaches (1 Cor 11:17-34) that everyone who receives these gifts to their benefit has 2 things in common:
1. They share a common faith about the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, and what God has done to adopt them as His children, and
2. They recognize their need for the forgiveness that Jesus offers.
We want you to join us in receiving these gifts through communion, so if you are unsure about any of these things, please speak with a pastor prior to receiving communion for the first time.
