The Body of Baptist Beliefs | Bible Study
by Laura Edgar
At Youth Ministry Conversations, we believe you know your group best. This means our resources look a little different than what you may have experienced in the past. We try and create a “buffet” of material so you can choose and pick what works best for your group. You will find ideas, instructions, and possibilities in this packet all related to the theme of “The Body of Baptist Beliefs.” How you use them, and how you structure your study, is up to you. We hope you enjoy this resource and return in the future to check out other materials.
There are certain practices that most Baptists follow in our churches. We don’t always stop to consider the deeper meaning of these practices. In this study, we’ll dig into each aspect of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We’ll think about how we talk about these practices, whether we call them “ordinances” or “sacraments.” We’ll also consider the importance of the Church as the place where we participate in these practices and how the Church can be considered a sacrament in itself.
Lesson 1: Ordinances vs. Sacraments and the Church
Lesson 2: The Church as Sacrament
Lesson 3: Baptism
Lesson 4: Communion
