“Preparing for the Lord’s Supper”

Matthew 28:19; Luke 22:19

As Baptists, we celebrate two ordinances: believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We base our beliefs of these two on the teaching of Jesus. We call them “ordinances” because Jesus ordered/commanded us to do these things. We do not use the word “sacrament” in describing baptism or the Lord’s Supper. No power is channeled through these acts of obedience.
