Household Sacramental Acts

Baptism and Holy Communion

Communion WafersWhat place would the sacraments and ceremonies of the Church have in the Household of Faith? In the New Testament, many of the household sacramental acts occurred in the Christian home. In a time before the institutional church had found its present form, the Communion, Baptism preparation and Biblical teaching were at the core of Household ministry. These and other sacraments such as Baptism, Holy Communion, Confirmation, and Confession/Absolution reside in the local church today. If there is no local church in an area, there would be no reason why these sacramental acts could not be practiced once again in the Household of Faith. There will be variations across the church and these parameters could be drawn up by the bishop and clergy for each situation.
