Ecclesiology and Eschatology #6 – The Ministries of the Church, Part 2

Last week we talked about the basic ministries through which the local church seeks to fulfill is purpose. We said at one point that the original reformation idea was that a local church had two basic ministries in order to be called a church of God: 1. Preaching of God’s Word and 2. Administration of the sacraments. This week we are going to talk about what are sacraments (also called ordinances by some) and we will talk in detail about two of them: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
