The Two Ordinances of the Church
1. Baptism - an event where a believer publicly and symbolically professes their faith and their fellowship with the Body of Christ.
2. Lord's Supper - a time where we remember and profess our Lord's sacrificial death while spiritually communing with Him.
Different Beliefs Concerning The Lord's Supper
1. Transubstantiation - (Traditional Roman Catholic) the belief that the substance of the bread and wine are changed to the blood and body of Christ. Must be properly administered by an ordained priest.
2. Consubstantiation - (Lutheran View) the molecules of the bread and wine but the body and blood are present WITH the bread and wine.
3. Spiritual (Dynamic) Communion - (Reformed View) no changes to the bread and wine. It is a total spiritual thing.
4. Commemoration (Memorial) - the role of the supper is to bring to mind the sufferings of Christ.
