At Mount Pleasant we recognise the Biblical ordinances of the Lord’s Supper and Believer’s Baptism.
The Lord’s Supper
“… the Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, ‘This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.’ For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes”. (1 Corinthians 11 v 23-26, NIV).
“Whoever believes and is baptised will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned”. (Mark 16 v 16, NIV).
Baptism is a wonderful occasion in a Christian’s walk with Jesus. A person is baptised on the basis of his or her individual profession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and is generally by full immersion in water.
