I. The True Body and Blood of our Savior
We believe that in Holy Communion the true body and blood of our Saviour Jesus Christ is given into the mouths of all who commune at this altar. Our Lord is present with us in, with, and under the forms of bread and wine not only in a "spiritual" sense, but with His true and actual body and blood. Further, this holy food is given to all - not only those who believe it.
The Holy Scriptures tell us that those who partake of Holy Communion in an unworthy manner, not recognizing this "real presence" of Jesus, bring harm to themselves. Therefore as a matter of love and pastoral care, our Pastor and Church want to make sure that all who commune with us understand what we are receiving in this Sacrament and why, so that it is received for good and not harm.
