Breaking of Bread

Breaking of Bread for believers is Sunday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

Worship is the privilege and duty of all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. In fact, worship is only for those who have personally asked the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive them for being a sinner because they realize without Christ’s mercy they are hopeless. Salvation is something that occurs once and it is accomplished by God, not man. Man’s part is to receive the gift of eternal life that is offered by God [John 1:12; Romans 3:23 and 6:23]. Once the sinner receives the Lord Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, his/her identity as a sinner is remembered no more by a Holy God, since the death of the Lord Jesus Christ is payment in full for the sinner’s offense to God [Hebrews10:3, Colossians 3:3]. We are born again [John.3:3] with new life in Christ [Ephesians 1:13]. Every one of the four gospels and one of Paul’s letters quotes Christ’s command to obey him by giving thanks and taking the bread and wine in remembrance of His body and blood to proclaim his death until He returns. The first generation church did this faithfully on every Lord’s Day after his ascension. Obedience to this command was so important that when Paul came on the scene years later, the Lord personally took him to heaven and reiterated the point.

We can never exhaust our thoughts and affections of He who is worthy to receive all riches and glory and honor forever and ever! Our worship times are for Jesus to receive only our adoration, not requests for anything. From the time of Christ’s institution of this practice almost 20 centuries ago, the church has followed suit on the first day of every week. So, we begin each week together corporately, remembering His death, examining His character and showing the Father in heaven our esteem got His worth. We remain in one accord, with one mind and our hearts and mouths afresh, as he initiated almost 2000 years ago.

A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself. 1 Corinthians 11:28-29
