What is Communion?
East White Oak Bible Church believes The Lord’s Supper (Communion) to be an ordinance prescribed by Christ to be observed by the Church (Matthew 26:26-30). Participation is reserved for those who profess faith in Christ Jesus alone as their hope of forgiveness and salvation (Romans 3:23-24, 6:23) and is not a means of salvation (Ephesians 2:8-9). Participation in communion is intended to be a memorial, observed in order to remember the great sacrifice that was made on the believer’s behalf by Christ on the cross (1Corinthians 11:23-26). The “bread” represents Christ’s body and the “cup” represents Christ’s blood (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
Observances are scheduled for the first Sunday of the month and Good Friday. Participants are asked to pick up communion elements in the foyer before entering the worship center. We request that participants partake of the elements together as directed by the pastor.
