”Christ himself has instituted Baptism and the Holy Communion (the Eucharist).
They are sacraments as the word of God is joined to the elements: water, bread, and wine. The sacraments are the visible signs of grace, which we can hold on to by faith.”
”In Baptism God joins us to Christ’s death and resurrection. The Son of God died for us, and his victory over death makes us partakers of new life.”
”The Holy Communion (Eucharist) or the Sacrament of the Altar is the holy supper instituted by Christ. In it he gives us his body and his blood to eat and drink.”
