The Ordinances We recognize the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper and water baptism.  We believe that a Christian baptism is the immersion in water of a believer into the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, to show faith, in a solemn and beautiful emblem of our faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Savior, with it’s effects in our death to sin and resurrection to new life.  The Lord’s Supper, in which the members of the church, by the sacred use of bread and wine, are to commemorate together the dying love of Christ, preceded always by solemn self-examination.
