Religion

Through The Lord’s Supper, or Holy Communion, the bread and cup symbolize the broken body and shed blood offered by Christ recall God’s great love for people. As they did for the disciples on the eve of Christ’s crucifixion.

Politics

God commands His people to respect the authority of political leaders and honor them. God also commands His people to pray for their political leaders.

Views

The strong feature of Baptism is that prayers are not only led by a minister, but often by a local preacher - a lay person who has been trained and authorized to lead worship and preach.
