A special note on Holy Communion
Our congregation believes that Holy Communion is a gift of Christ to His Holy Church. Because of what Holy Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions teach, we request that those who wish to commune here:
1. Be baptized Christians who recognize their sin and come in true repentance. (Romans 6:1-4, 11-14)
2. Believe that through the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus, God forgives our sins. (John 3:16)
3. Believe that in and with the bread and wine, we receive in a miraculous way the real Body and Blood of Christ for the forgiveness of our sins and strengthening of our faith. (1 Cor 10:16 and 11:23-29)
4. Recognize that participation in this meal at Faith indicates a public agreement with the Lutheran understanding of God’s Word and a oneness in the Lutheran faith with fellow communicants. (1 Cor 10:16-17)
If you disagree with, or are unaware of, the teachings of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, or have any doubts or question, we respectfully ask that you visit with Pastor before communing here at Faith the first time.
