Ordinances

We believe the ordinances given to the local church are two, baptism and the Lord's Supper: that baptism is a one time event following salvation and is by immersion of believers, thus portraying the death, burial, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ; that the Lord's Supper is the partaking of the bread and cup by the believer as a continuing memorial of the broken body and shed blood of Christ.  We believe that the Lord's Supper can be taken by any believer who is in a right relationship with Jesus Christ.  Matthew 28:19, 20; Acts 2:41, 8:38, 39; Matthew 26:26-30; 1 Corinthians 11:23-34.
