What is the service like?


What is it about?

Christ has invited those who follow Him to join Him at His table.  We join Jesus at His table to obey Him, to publicly show unity as followers, and to remember His sacrifice on the cross for us.  We use both bread and rice crackers to symbolize His broken body and grape juice to reflect on His blood shed for us.  It is a solemn time of reflection but also an encouraging time to be refreshed as the gathering of Jesus followers that we call the church.

Can I take communion?

Yes, there is a place for everyone at Jesus’ table and he desires everyone to join him.  Examine your heart and open it to the Lord before taking part in this very special remembrance of His last supper.  We invite anyone who has a desire to say “yes” to Jesus to join us in this communal meal.

What is Communion?


Why?

We believe baptism is an outward demonstration of our acceptance of Christ.  Jesus has invited us to come to Him and baptism is our enthusiastic answer of “yes!”  Publicly, through baptism, we show our desire to enter into a new life as Christians.  

How?

Because of this we believe that baptism is only undertaken by those who are able to say “yes” in a real and meaningful way.  We call this believers baptism.  We also believe that from the examples we read in the bible of people being baptized, that this should be done through the complete immersion of the individual in water.  This not only remains true to the New Testament examples, but also symbolizes that we die and rise into new life just as Christ died and was raised.  Sometimes we do this in a large baptism tank that is located at the front of the church but often we do this at a local beach or lake.  Either occasion is a public event that invites the church to come along side those who publicly say “Jesus is my Lord”.

Tithing

 

Why Tithe?

Your generous financial partnership with ABC allows us to work together to wisely steward resources to fulfill the vision God has called us to pursue.
Tithing isn't merely giving something to God. It's giving back what was His to begin with. All that we have, or hope to have, comes from Him. The Bible says that tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything. It teaches us to always put God first in our lives.  Anne added: We are to give with a happy heart and out of the love to further the works of Jesus.
