Frequently asked Questions
WHAT IS THE HOLY COMMUNION?
This is also known as the Lord’s Supper. The Holy Communion consists of two elements:
- The Bread which represents the body of our Lord Jesus that was broken for our healing and
- The Wine (Drink) which represents the blood of Jesus shed for the forgiveness of sins.
The Holy Communion reminds us of God’s greatest demonstration of His Love for us—He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross for us.
WHEN CAN I PARTAKE OF THE HOLY COMMUNION?
You can partake of the Holy Communion any time of the day in a group gathering or individually.
HOW DO I PARTAKE OF THE HOLY COMMUNION?
Take the bread in your hand and say this prayer: (You can adapt it to suit you)
Thank You Lord Jesus for dying for me on the cross. You were wounded for my sins and crushed for my transgressions. By Your stripes, I am healed and made whole in every area of my body. (Amen.) Go ahead and eat the Bread.
Take the drink in your hand (open the cup by pulling back the small tab on the lid) and say this prayer: (You can adapt it to suit you)
Thank You Lord Jesus for shedding Your blood for me on Calvary’s cross. By Your Blood, I have forgiveness of sins. By Your Blood, I have been declared righteous. So, I stand before you as the righteousness of God in Christ. (Amen.) Go ahead and drink the juice.
HOW OFTEN DO I PARTAKE?
Our Lord Jesus reminded us to partake of the Holy Communion as often as we can in remembering Him (1 Corinthians 11:23-25).
The early Church in the book of Acts gathered together daily and broke bread from house to house (Acts 2:46).
For individuals and families, we recommend a daily partaking of the communion and as for groups and churches, as often as you meet. For example, if a church meets twice a week, then you can partake twice a week. If you only meet on Sundays, then you can partake every Sunday.
