Professing the Faith
Celebrating the Lord's Supper
Communion is a sacrament, a holy time established by Jesus Himself for us to celebrate our relationship with God and the cleansing Jesus offers for our hearts. As Presbyterians, we believe we meet with the living Christ in the Lord’s Supper. We believe Jesus is spiritually present as we partake of the elements of Communion. As we eat the elements, we are receiving Him and connecting with Jesus as we look to Him in faith. We seek His Spirit to help us have the power
and strength to live with and for Him in the days ahead. It is a regular time of renewing and deepening our relationship with Christ.
For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it,
in remembrance of me.” For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.
