The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has two sacraments: Baptism
and the Lord's Supper
"The Reformed tradition understands Baptism and the Lord's Supper to be Sacraments,
instituted by God and commended by Christ. Sacraments are signs of the real presence
and power of Christ in the Church, symbols of God's action. Through the Sacraments,
God seals believers in redemption, renews their identity as the people of God, and
marks them for service." (Book of Order W-1.3033.2)
"The early Church, following Jesus, took three primary material elements of life
--water, bread, and wine--to become basic symbols of offering life to God as
Jesus had offered his life. Being washed with the water of Baptism, Christians
received new life in Christ and presented their bodies to be living sacrifices to
God. Eating bread and drinking wine they received the sustaining presence of Christ,
remembered God's covenant promise, and pledged their obedience anew." (Book of Order W-1.3033.1)
Baptism: "Baptism enacts and seals what the Word proclaims: God's redeeming grace offered
to all people. Baptism is God's gift of grace and also God's summons to respond to
that grace. Baptism calls to repentance, to faithfulness, and to discipleship.
Baptism gives the Church its identity and commissions the Church for ministry
to the world." (Book of Order W-2.3006)
"The water used for Baptism should be common to the location, and shall be applied
to the person by pouring, sprinkling, or immersion. By whatever mode, the water
should be applied visibly and generously." (Book of Order W-3.3605)
"Baptism is received only once. There are many times in worship, however, when
believers acknowledge the grace of God continually at work. As they participate
in the celebration of another's Baptism, as they experience the sustaining nurture
of the Lord's Supper, and as they reaffirm the commitments made at Baptism,
they confess their ongoing need of God's grace and pledge anew their obedience
to God's covenant in Christ." (Book of Order W-2.3009)
"As there is one body, there is one Baptism. (Eph. 4:4-6) The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
recognizes all Baptisms with water in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of
the Holy Spirit administered by other Christian Churches." (Book of Order W-2.3010)
Lord's Supper: "The Lord's Supper is the sign and seal of eating and drinking in communion with
the crucified and risen Lord. During his earthly ministry Jesus shared meals
with his followers as a sign of community and acceptance and as an occasion for
his own ministry." (Book of Order W-2.4001a)
Around the Table of the Lord, God's people are in communion with Christ and
with all who belong to Christ. Reconciliation with Christ compels reconciliation
with one another. All the baptized faithful are to be welcomed to the Table,
and none shall be excluded because of race, sex, age, economic status, social
class, handicapping condition, difference of culture or language, or any barrier
created by human injustice. Coming to the Lord's Table the faithful are actively
to seek reconciliation in every instance of conflict or division between them and
their neighbors. (Book of Order W-2.4006)
The Lord's Supper is to be observed on the Lord's Day, in the regular place of
worship, and in a manner suitable to the particular occasion and local congregation.
It is appropriate to celebrate the Lord's Supper as often as each Lord's Day.
It is to be celebrated regularly and frequently enough to be recognized as
integral to the Service for the Lord's Day. (Book of Order W-2.4009)
The invitation to the Lord's Supper is extended to all who have been baptized,
remembering that access to the Table is not a right conferred upon the worthy,
but a privilege given to the undeserving who come in faith, repentance, and love.
In preparing to receive Christ in this Sacrament, the believer is to confess sin
and brokenness, to seek reconciliation with God and neighbor, and to trust in Jesus
Christ for cleansing and renewal. Even one who doubts or whose trust is wavering
may come to the Table in order to be assured of God's love and grace in Christ Jesus.
(Book of Order W-2.4011a)
