THE SACRAMENTS

Presbyterians celebrate two Sacraments: Baptism and Communion (also known as the Lord’s Supper or Eucharist). We affirm these two Sacraments to be ordained by God and instituted by the Lord Jesus Christ (see Matthew 28:19–20 and Matthew 26:26–29). In Baptism we are united to Christ as members of his body, the church; at Communion we join with the church in every time and place to give thanks for our salvation in Christ. In Baptism we are washed and welcomed by the grace of God; at Communion we are nourished and strengthened by that same grace.

MOPC celebrates The Lord's Supper eight times a year, including holidays such as Christmas Eve and Palm Sunday.  We baptize all ages and believe infant baptism signifies the start of a life-long journey in Christ.  You do not need to be re-baptized to become Presbyterian.  We recognize all baptisms done in the name of the Trinity.
