HOLY COMMUNION

We do believe, teach and confess as Jesus taught His disciples and as the apostolic church has always taught through the ages; that Jesus Christ is physically present in the consecrated bread and the wine of Holy Communion.  Jesus instituted this highest Holy Sacrament to share His grace with God’s own redeemed children in the most intimate way.  In Holy Communion, we become one with each other and one with Our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Holy Communion is only to be consumed by the faithful-repentant.  As Jesus said (John 17:22-23), “The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.”

It is the essential function of His Church to make disciples and to teach and proclaim this one true Faith in Jesus Christ.  We would love the opportunity to also make you a disciple of Jesus Christ in this one true apostolic faith.  The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) practices close or closed communion.  To protect those who are not in a right relationship with God, only baptized, catechized, members-in-good-standing of the LCMS will be served His true body and blood.  Upon visiting, please speak with the Pastor one of our Elders to help you.
