The Lord’s Supper: Tuesday, March 31, 7 PM
We hold that the Bible is the final / absolute authority on every issue of life, including theology and doctrine. We are Bible believers here, and every Bible believer must not only know sound doctrine (2 Tim 4:3), but also conform unreservedly. Of great importance is the doctrine of the Lord’s Supper (1 Cor. 11:20). We utterly reject the unbiblical teaching of Catholics / Protestants that this ordinance and other so-called sacraments are essential to gain favor with God for salvation, etc. The Bible teaches that there’s a proper purpose and a meticulous method to administer the Lord’s Supper and such will be my message topic today for both the 10:30AM and 6:00PM services.
New Testament Baptist Church family members have a scriptural obligation to make individual participation in the Lord’s Supper a priority! This memorial service for our Lord is one of the most stirring events on the Church calendar.
Please, some specifics. The Lord’s Supper is not an occasion to invite those outside the Church family, such as friends, neighbors, personal family members … we have 207 services each year to accomplish soul winning and edifying and showing ourselves friendly. This is not an evangelistic service, nor a time for members to enjoy fellowship with each other. This special remembrance shows the Lord’s death till he come (1 Cor. 11:26), and serves as a “once-a-year-personal-introspection” time: but let a man examine himself (1 Cor. 11:28). We’ve always included regular / faithful winter attenders as proxy members while living temporarily in Tucson each year, making NTBC their spiritual home-away-from-home, while agreeing with our doctrinal stand and convictions. (It’s superfluous and redundant to ask and receive church letters every year)
In the next several days, let all of us prayerfully prepare our hearts and then partake of the Lord’s Supper. Fasting is appropriate, however, food abstinence is an individual choice. The service will start promptly at 7 PM, and will be accomplished without preliminary music, announcements, preaching.
Be early, spending quality time for personal meditation with our Lord while keeping conversation with other members to a minimum. Families are asked to sit together. Parents, it is your responsibility to determine the Scriptural appropriateness of your children’s participation … have they been saved and baptized?
Please give special attention today to my messages on this essential Bible doctrine of the Lord’s Supper (New Testament) that replaced the Passover (Old Testament). Pastor Joiner
