Q 102. What is the Lord’s supper?
A. The Lords supper is an ordinance of the New Testament, instituted by Jesus Christ; wherein by giving and receiving bread and wine, according to his appointment, his death is shown forth, and the worthy receivers are, not after a corporal and carnal manner, but by faith, made partakers of his body and blood, with all his benefits, to their spiritual nourishment and growth in grace (Mt. 26:26, 27, 28; 1 Cor. 11:23-26; 10:16).

Dr. Richard Barcellos delivered a helpful message concerning this topic titled “The Lord’s Supper as a Means of Grace” at the 2011  ARBCA General Assembly.  Listen here
