Article XVI – The Lord’s Supper

We believe the Lord’s supper is symbolic of Jesus’ body being broken for us and His blood being spilt for us.  Believers are to partake of it in remembrance of Him.  The elements of the Lord’s supper are unleavened bread and wine like those used by Jesus in sharing the Passover with His disciples.  We do not believe that the elements are literally changed into flesh and blood as do some faiths.

Scripture references:  1 Corinthians 11:23-30, Matthew 26:17-28 and Mark 14:12-24.
