Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
The ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Breaking of Bread / Communion) are to be observed as acts of obedience and as perpetual witness to the cardinal truths of the Christian faith.
Baptism is understood as identification with the Lord Jesus Christ in His death, burial and resurrection as a sign of the gospel. Some understand this to refer to the baptism of believers and others to the baptism of the children of believing parents.
The ordinance of Baptism will be performed on request for:
Believers who wish to be immersed as a confession of their faith;
The children of believers who are members of the church, as the acceptance of all God’s promises for the child/children by the parents, and that the parents pledge to raise their children in the Christian faith.
The Lord’s Supper is the partaking of the bread and the cup as symbolical of the Saviour’s body and shed blood, in remembrance of His sacrificial death and resurrection, looking forward to His return. As a local church, KCC celebrates the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of every month.
