St. Luke Lutheran Church, Winamac, IN 

Our beliefs about Holy Communion

Communion is our Lord’s body and blood for the forgiveness of sins. Scripture warns us that ,"Whoever, therefore, eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of profaning the body and blood of the Lord." (1 Corinthians 11:27, ESV)  

We receive the body and blood in a worthy manner when we have examined ourselves and;

  • We have faith in Christ and His Words, “Given and shed for you for the forgiveness of sins.”
  • When we are sorry for our sins.
  • When we believe that this is truly Christ's body and blood.
  • When we plan, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to change our sinful lives. 

We invite baptized Christians who have been instructed in the Lutheran Church and share and confess our beliefs in faith to join us in Holy Communion.

We ask our guests to speak with Pastor Tom before communing
