Matthew 28:18-20 ; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, The Ordinances: Where Our Past and Future Meet

Chapter 28 of the Baptist Confession of Faith presents a summary of the church’s two ordinances: baptism and the Lord’s Table. Two chapters devoted to the individual ordinances follow. Our sermon plan will follow this scheme, this Lord’s Day looking at two key passages to explain the general character of the ordinances. In the following two Sunday services, we will return to these passages to look at the individual ordinances, explaining each one in greater depth.
