Bible Answer Concerning
Email Question:
I praise God for this site. Could you please enlighten us on the issue of
holy communion; as Christians how should we handle it?

Our Response:

We believe in Open Communion-- where all true born-again believers in
Christ Jesus may participate. Communion is addressed in 1 Corinthians 11,
following what our Lord commanded in the Gospels.

1Cor 11:26  
For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do
shew the Lord's death till he come.

We do not believe in the Catholic mass- where they believe that in every
mass, they call down Christ and it is the actual body and blood that people
are eating. This is NOT found in Scripture and is anti-biblical.

The biblical viewpoint is that when Christians gather for communion, they
do so in remembering the death [and resurrection] of our Lord Jesus Christ
and it is a very serious gathering. One should not take it lightly. Make sure
everything is right between you and God before partaking. (Read 1 Cor. 11

And the bread and wine [grape juice] are symbolic of the Lord's body
broken for us and His blood-- which was shed for our sins-- on Mt.
Calvary. And Believers are instructed to have communion (whether it is
once a week, month, etc.) in remembrance of His Finished Work upon the
cross..."till He come."
