John 6:55–56 ESV
55 For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. 56 Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him

1 Corinthians 11:24-25a ESV
24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying,

Matthew 26:27-28 ESV
27 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, 28 for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

1 Corinthians 11:24-25a ESV
 29 For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body eats and drinks judgment on himself. 

See our Newsletter for a more complete explanation of the correct practices and beliefs of serving the Lord’s Supper.

Without the proper knowledge and teaching of the Lord’s Supper we would be allowing people to take it to their judgement.  This is not in our hearts to see one be judged.  This also brings judgement upon the pastor serving the Lord’s Supper. 

James 3:1 ESV Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.

 

This is not about us or you, but rather about what our God wants for all believers.

John 3:17 ESV 17

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
