What is Communion and why is it important?

Unlike Baptism, which is a one time event, Communion is a practice that is meant to be observed over and over throughout the life of a Christian. It is a holy time of worship when we corporately come together as one body to remember and celebrate what Christ did for us.

Why do we observe Communion?

  • We observe Communion because the Lord told us to. We are to obey His commands:
    And when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me."1 Corinthians 11:24 (NIV)

     

  • In observing Communion we are remembering Christ and all that He has done for us in his life, death and resurrection:
    And when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me."1 Corinthians 11:24 (NIV)

     

  • When observing Communion we take time to examine ourselves:
    A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup.1 Corinthians 11:28 (NIV)

     

  • In observing Communion we are proclaiming His death until He comes. It is, then, a statement of faith:
    For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes. 1 Corinthians 11:26 (NIV)

 

  • When we observe Communion we show our participation in the body of Christ. His life becomes our life and we become members of each other:
    Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf. 1 Corinthians 10:16-17 (NIV)
