The Holy Sacraments
The sacraments have been a common part of Christian worship, for almost all churches in all times and in all places. These ceremonies or symbolic acts have marked Christian worship from the very first days of the apostles. Although many denominations today may disagree about their exact meaning, form, or way of practicing, most Christians agree that these sacred rites both proclaim and enact the deepest truths of the Christian faith. In this Groundwork series, we'll study the scriptures that inform our beliefs about the Holy Sacraments, what happens when we practice them, and their purpose in the Christian life.
