COMMUNION BELIEFS AND PRACTICES

Communion for Sunday Services is celebrated on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th Sundays of the month.


Redeemer Lutheran Church practices closed communion and believes that Holy Communion is a gift from Christ to His Church. The apostle Paul wrote, "Let a man examine himself, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body, eats and drinks judgment upon himself." (1Corinthians 11: 28-29). Out of loving concern for the communicants and from our understanding of the Holy Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions, we request that those who commune here:

1.     Have been baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit

2.     Have been instructed in the truth of the Holy Scriptures as taught in the Lutheran Confessions, who have been confirmed in this Lutheran faith, and who confess the same doctrines that are taught in this congregation, holding membership in a congregation of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.

3.     Believe that in this sacrament the real body and blood of Christ are truly distributed to them and orally received by them, bestowing on them the forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation.

4.     Repent of their sins, and desire to receive God's forgiveness in this holy meal.

Guests at our services, before receiving the sacrament, are requested to affirm these facts with our pastor. Thank you for honoring our practice. If you are looking for a church home, would like to learn more about the Christian Faith, please speak to pastor about our membership classes.

C  Most merciful God, we confess that we are by nature sinful and unclean. We have sinned against You in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved You with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We justly deserve Your present and eternal punishment. For the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us. Forgive us, renew us, and lead us, so that we may delight in Your will and walk in Your ways to the glory of Your holy name. Amen.

Sermon Hymn

Sermon

Nicene Creed                                                                                                                       

C  I believe in one God,

     the Father Almighty,

     maker of heaven and earth

     and of all things visible and invisible.

 

And in one Lord Jesus Christ,

     the only-begotten Son of God,

     begotten of His Father before all worlds,

     God of God, Light of Light,

     very God of very God,

     begotten, not made,

     being of one substance with the Father,

     by whom all things were made;

     who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven

     and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary

     and was made man;

     and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate.

     He suffered and was buried.

     And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures

     and ascended into heaven

     and sits at the right hand of the Father.

     And He will come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead,

     whose kingdom will have no end.

 

And I believe in the Holy Spirit,

     the Lord and giver of life,

     who proceeds from the Father and the Son,

     who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified,

     who spoke by the prophets.

     And I believe in one holy Christian and apostolic Church,

     I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins,

     and I look for the resurrection of the dead

     and the life T of the world to come. Amen.
