About the Series
We use the phrase “means of grace” as a general term to capture all of the ways God has appointed to convey His grace to men and women. The best examples of this are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Jesus instituted these two public, visible “signs” into practice as a way of marking our new life in Christ. We call these two practices sacraments, or “sacred rituals,” because Jesus instituted them and commanded us to observe them. A sacrament is “an outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace.” This means that God is present in the water of baptism and at the table where we feast. God acts in the lives of those who practice these sacraments. Please join us as we examine the sacraments of Baptism and The Lord’s Supper.
