Our Confession

Lords-Table1-300x120We observe the Lord’s Table on a weekly basis at Christ Covenant Church. Here is the confession that our members recite in unison just prior to the serving of the elements:

We who profess to be the redeemed people of God also confess that we are sinners in need of a Savior. We cannot save ourselves for no righteousness dwells in us which will justify us before God. For it is written, “there is none righteous, no not one” and it is also written, “how can man be right before God?”

Therefore we appeal to God through Jesus Christ…the Son of Man, the Son of God… Who lived a sinless life, Who died an atoning death, Who rose again for our justification. He is the world’s Prophet, Priest and King… He is the world’s Lord, Judge and only Savior. For it is written, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no one comes to the Father but through Me” and it is also written, “I am the Lord, there is no Savior besides Me”.

These things we see communicated through the bread and the cup. The bread represents His body and life; the cup His blood and death. These elements we partake of in faith…These elements we partake of with holy lives and a commitment to the local church which is also the Body of Christ. These elements we long to partake of with Him in the coming kingdom.

This is our remembrance…

This is our proclamation…

This is our New Covenant…

This is our sure hope.
