I Desire The Lord's Supper

For those in fellowship with Christ Lutheran Church . . .

As one in fellowship with this congregation, I am committed to the whole Bible as God’s Word, inspired and without error, and to the Lutheran Confessions as a true explanation of that Word.

I acknowledge my sinfulness and grieve over my disobedience of God’s Law (The Ten Commandments) both by what I have done and by what I have failed to do.

I wish to break with sin and amend my life.

I seek God’s mercy and forgiveness, trusting alone in Jesus Christ and in his precious blood and innocent death as my only payment for sin.

I believe that when I receive the consecrated bread and wine, I take into my mouth the actual Body and Blood of the living Son of God, the same Body and Blood which hung on the cross for me.

I believe that the actual Body and Blood of Jesus are received by all communicants, whether they are believing or unbelieving, by the believing for the forgiveness of sins, life and salvation, but by the unbelieving to their judgement.

To my knowledge I am at peace with my brothers and sisters in God’s Church and with my pastor, am ready to offer forgiveness to those who have wronged me, and I seek peace and harmony as a member of Christ’s family in accord with his Word.
