What’s needed to become a communicant member of Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church?
1. A broken and contrite (humble) heart
2. A understanding of and belief in the basic teachings of the Christian Faith, which consists of:
1. God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (the Trinity)
2. The Law
3. Human Nature
4. Jesus Christ, as the Son of God (fully human and fully divine)
5. The Gospel (Justification)
6. Holy Baptism (as a means of grace)
7. The Lord’s Supper (real presence as a means of grace)
8. The Church and Ministry (retaining and forgiving sins in the stead and by the command)
If you’re interested in learning about the fundamentals of the Christian Faith, the sermons and other resources contained on Immanuel’s webpage would be a good start.
