Communion

Jesus established the Lord’s Supper shortly before His death. On the evening before the crucifixion while sharing Passover with his disciples, “Jesus took bread, gave thanks, and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, ‘Take and eat; this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and gave thanks, and offered it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it all of you. This is the blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins’” (Matthew 26:26-28). Do this in remembrance of me (Luke 22:19).

The Lord’s Supper is a time to remember the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. During this memorial remembrance the bread symbolizes the body of Christ and the wine symbolizes the blood of Christ. When believers take the elements in an act of worship, gathering in His name, Christ ‘s presence is among them and felt (Matthew 18).

Oak Hills Church invites all who believe in Jesus and have accepted His gift of salvation to participate in receiving communion.

Marriage and Sexuality

We believe that the Bible defines “marriage” as one man, one woman for life (Mark 10:6-9). We further believe that intimate sexual activity is a sacred gift of God and intended to be celebrated only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Corinthians 6:18; 7:2-5; Hebrews 13:4).
