The best theology we teach is not from the pulpit, but from the Lord's Supper. There we learn about the Godhead and the attributes of deity. There we learn about the person and work of Christ. There we learn about the sinfulness of man. There we learn about our great salvation. There we learn about the coming of Christ. There we learn the vocabulary of the Bible: grace, mercy, redemption, propitiation, reconciliation, atonement. There we worship! It is central to who we are.
In this booklet, David Glock addresses one of the major distinctives of the Assembly movement—our approach to the Lord's Supper. He outlines why we do what we do, and suggests that we have an obligation to share this blessed privilege with others.
