New City Catechism #47
Q. Does the Lord’s Supper add anything to Christ’s atoning work?
A. No, Christ died once for all. The Lord’s Supper is a covenant meal celebrating Christ’s atoning work; as it is also a means of strengthening our faith as we look to him, and a foretaste of the future feast. But those who take part with unrepentant hearts eat and drink judgment on themselves.
Scripture Memory Verses
