Sacraments

 

  On Weekly Communion   (63 KB)   
One of the most significant liturgical practices reintroduced to the Church by the protestant Reformers was their insistence on frequent celebration of the Lord's Supper by the laity. Calvin suggested the Church observe the Lord's Supper whenever the church gathered together for worship. Calvin wrote that this means most Christians would observe the Lord's Supper each week.

  Baptism in Water   (66 KB)   
Water Baptism is a symbolic burial and a covenant through which the new Christian convert declares publicly to be "dead" to his former heathen life and to begin a new life in Christ by the grace of God. It is a formal declaration, once for all, that now he is a slave/servant of Jesus Christ, recognizing Him as His Saviour, Lord and Master of his soul. Baptism is an affirmation of faith: "my old life is behind me - I am now a new creation with a new life" 2Co 5:17. It is a declaration of repentance, a sign of deep changes within, up to the point of being buried with Christ.

  The Lord's Supper   (42 KB)   
The New testament gives to the Paschal the typical significance, but it sees in it not only the liberation from the slavery of Egypt but also a sign and a seal of liberation from the slavery of sin and the communion with God through the promise Messiah in the Old Testament 1Co 5:7
