Beliefs-The Sacraments

The Sacrament of Baptism
     
Through baptism we are joined with the church and with Christians everywhere. 
Baptism is a symbol of new life and a sign of God's love and forgiveness of our sins. 
The United Methodist Church recognizes baptism by immersion, sprinkling, or by pouring.
 
The Sacrament of Holy Communion
     
The Lord's Supper recalls the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.  The Lord's Supper is
a holy meal.  The bread and wine (grape juice) symbolize the body and blood of Christ.
By taking Holy Communion, we offer thanks for Christ's sacrifice and are thus empowered
to go forward through the love of our Lord, Jesus Christ.  The United Methodist Church
welcomes anyone to partake of the Sacrament of Holy Communion.
