In a plain straightforward manner, senior minister Richard Phillips explains the basis for the observance of the Lord's Supper. He begins with the biblical institution as a sacrament, its relationship to the Jewish Passover, its purpose as a sign to God's People, and its purpose as a Covenant Seal. He then explains the theological issues, including the presence of Christ in the sacrament, the efficacy of the sacrament, and some words about pastoral considerations.
