The Ordinances of the Church Series
Baptism and Communion
Why is there so much confusion and disagreement among Christians about the ordinances of baptism and communion? Jesus commanded us to practice both, yet there continue to be many misunderstandings among Christians regarding both. Pastor Jeff and Jen define baptism as an illustration of Christ's death and resurrection, a public declaration of faith in Christ, a step of identification with Him, and a proclamation of desire to follow Him. Join us in listening to these episodes as we consider this commandment and how it should be carried out.
Do you know the origins of Communion? Christ initiated the Lord’s Supper at Passover. Jesus transformed the Passover meal (commemorating Israel’s deliverance out of Egyptian slavery) into the celebration of the infinitely greater deliverance (of mankind from hell). When we remember His body and blood, we remember the spiritual and eternal redemption that He bought and paid for His loved ones. Listen to the latest podcast episodes as Pastor Jeff and Jen look at how the Corinthian church had perverted the Lord’s Supper, what the Lord’s purpose for communion is, and how we can rightly prepare for it.
