Just What Exactly Is an “Ordinance” Anyway?

The word “ordinance” may be unfamiliar to some of you, but it’s actually a pretty simple concept. And this past Sunday at The Felowship we celebrated with two of them! Watch it here!

An ordinance isn’t a kind of church ritual that “saves” you if you do it. The Bible clearly states that through Christ alone we are saved (Ephesians 2:8-9; Acts 4:12; Titus 3:5).
An ordinance, however, is a command that the New Testament calls us to obey. In simple terms, church ordinances are visual aids to help us better understand and appreciate what Jesus Christ has done for us. The two we as a church observed this past weekend were baptism and communion. And what a great day it was! You can see it all here

Join us this Sunday as we begin a new series, Backwards. Worship at 10:45 a.m. with LIFEgroups at 9:30 a.m. See you there!

Serving Alongside,
Pastor Matt
