The Lord’s Supper is God’s gift for baptized Christians who are properly instructed. We practice close Communion. This means that as you receive Holy Communion you affirm with each communicant that Jesus is your Savior and Lord and that you share the confession of faith professed here by Lutheran Christians. The statements below reflect our belief.
The Communion Confession
- I recognize and confess that I am a sinner. I repent of my sin and ask God’s forgiveness. With His help, I will amend my sinful life.
- I believe that Jesus Christ is my only Lord and Savior from sin, Satan and death.
- I believe that the risen Christ is truly present in the Sacrament and, under the form of the bread and the wine, I receive His true body and true blood for the forgiveness of my sins and the strengthening of my faith and life.
- I resolve to dedicate my life to the service of my Lord by regular group worship, sacrificial giving, thankful living, and sharing the Gospel with others.
