"And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me."
(I Corinthians 11:24-25)
Holy Communion is a memorial of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It symbolizes our freedom from sin and its effect on our fellowship with God through Christ. The Greek word for communion in the New Testament is KOINONIA, which means “a fellowship, a partaking.” Therefore, Holy Communion is a physical reminder of our fellowship with Christ and our victory over the devil.
The Bible teaches that an individual should not participate in Holy Communion “unworthily” (I Corinthians 11:27). This would refer to two states of being:
- An individual who has not received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior (not born again).
- A born again believer who has unconfessed sin in his or her life.
As an assembled body of believers, we partake of Holy Communion the fourth Sunday of every month. Click on our Events Calendar for the date of this month's Holy Communion.
