First Lutheran's Communion Statement
The Lord’s Supper is celebrated in our worship service today. In this supper, our Lord Jesus Christ graciously feeds the humble sinner with His true Body and true Blood for the forgiveness of sins and the strengthening of faith (Matt. 26:26-28; Heb. 10:19-25). Scripture clearly teaches that anyone who eats and drinks without believing in and publicly confessing that the bread and wine are Christ’s true Body and Blood receives condemnation from God rather than forgiveness, life, and salvation (1 Cor. 11:27-29). Therefore, out of a Christian concern for souls, we require a thorough instruction in the teachings of the Lutheran Church before participating in this Sacrament (See Luther’s Large Catechism VI). Participation at the altar is also a testimony of unity of faith with all others who partake (1 Cor. 10:16-22). Since unity at the altar demonstrates unity in teaching and practice (Acts 2:42) and out of Christian love and concern, we request that only those who are in confessional fellowship with the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod attend.
Please know that we look forward to having you at the Lord’s Table soon. We sincerely invite you to visit with Pastor Schultz about the joys of the Lord’s Supper.
