    The sacraments are divine ordinances instituted by Christ himself. In that respect the sacraments are similar to other necessary ordinances which also form part of the church’s worship—prayer, for example. Christ told us to pray. But they differ from things . It seems that “ordinance” refers to dominical origin–ordained (by the Lord Christ)–and “sacrament” refers to function–a sign and means of grace (Cf. Richard A. Muller, Dictionary of Latin and Greek Theological Terms [Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, , Second printing, September ], under the entry “sacramentum.

    As the basis of receiving God's grace, Catholic sacraments and the Liturgy are very important elements to the Catholic Faith.

    When it comes to questions about the necessity of a church, divine authority, and ordinances/sacraments, LDS doctrine is very similar to that of the Catholic and Orthodox churches; of course, the main difference is that Mormons believe they are the ones with the divinely recognized authority and ordinances. The General Rules of the Methodist Church. Also printed in the Book of Discipline are The General Rules of the Methodist Church, which began as Wesley’s General Rules for Our United Societies.

In those cases, the words ordinance and sacrament are virtually Ordinances and sacraments of the Church book.

These activities were practiced by the apostles and were universally used in the early church. Because baptism and communion are the only two rituals that were used by Jesus, the apostles, and early church, these are the only two sacraments or ordinances held by Protestant churches.

Complicating the issue somewhat is the fact that some churches do see the ordinances as means of grace; other churches consider the sacraments as symbols of spiritual reality and not the reality itself.

In those cases, the words ordinance and sacrament are virtually synonymous. An ordinance is a Christian rite, associated with tangible elements (water; bread and wine), that is celebrated by the church of Jesus Christ. The term is closely associated with the word sacrament, which is an outward and visible sign of an inward and invisible grace.

Broadly speaking, Christianity. Clements, George George Clements (left) distributes the Eucharist at his parish, Holy Angels Church, in Chicago, John H. White/EPA/National Archives, Washington, D.C. The Eucharist, or Holy Communion, is another sacrament of initiation and can be received daily if is the central rite of Catholic worship.

A baptized child's First Communion is usually celebrated around age seven. Ordinances and blessings are sacred acts performed by the authority of the priesthood and in the name of Jesus Christ. As priesthood holders perform ordinances and blessings, they follow the Savior’s example of blessing others.

Priesthood ordinances and blessings provide access to God’s power (see Doctrine and Covenants ). In the Church, an ordinance is a sacred, formal act performed by the authority of the priesthood.

Some ordinances are essential to our exaltation. These ordinances are called saving ordinances. They include baptism, confirmation, ordination to the Melchizedek Priesthood (for men), the temple endowment, and the marriage sealing. Sacrament and Ordinance are two terms between which a key difference can be identified.

Christianity is a religion that is followed by more than 2 billion people around the world. In Christianity, sacred rites having importance are referred to as sacraments and also as ordinances.

The seven sacraments are baptism, confirmation, holy communion, penance (confession), marriage, holy orders (ordination), and anointing of the sick. According to the Roman Catholic Church: “There are seven sacraments.

They were instituted by Christ and given to the Church to administer. They are necessary for salvation. As a ceremonial ordinance, the Passover served merely as a reminder of the deliverance God provided in the original event.

There was no repetition of deliverance in each observance. This is the view of Baptists and other Separatists* concerning the Ordinances (as opposed to sacraments) which Christ gave to the Church.

Baptists usually use the term “ordinances” rather than “sacraments” when referring to baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Even if “sacraments” is used, it is never intended to imply that either of these two is necessary for a person to be saved. Sacraments, Ordinances & The Church The greatest controversy in the history of the church took place in the sixteenth century between the Roman Catholic Church and the Protestant Reformers over the question of how justification takes place.

The issue was whether a person can be made right with God by faith in Jesus alone or by some other means. In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), the Holy Sacrament of the Lord's Supper, most often simply referred to as the sacrament, is the ordinance in which participants eat bread and drink water in remembrance of the body and blood of Jesus is not equivalent to the Eucharist or Holy Communion in the Catholic Church but similar to rituals of Protestant.

The Catholic church observes seven sacraments. Lutherans, Presbyterians, Episcopalians and many others observe two sacraments- the Lord's Supper and baptism.

Baptists observe two ordinances- the Lord's Supper and baptism. If these things are discussed in casual conversation, the terms sacrament and ordinance are often used as if they mean the same thing. An ordinance is a religious ritual whose intent is to demonstrate an adherent's faith. Examples include baptism and the Lord's Supper, as practiced in the Christian traditions such as Anabaptists, all Baptist churches, Churches of Christ groups, and Pentecostal churches.

Our Anglican tradition recognizes sacraments as “outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace.” (The Book of Common Prayer, p. ) Holy Baptism and the Eucharist (or Holy Communion) are the two great sacraments given by Christ to his Church. In the case of Baptism, the outward and visible sign is water, in which the person is baptized in the Name of the Father, and of the Son.

Baptists recognize only two ordinances—believer's baptism and the Lord's Supper (communion). They do not recognize them as sacraments because of historic Baptist theology that no saving grace is conveyed by either and that original sin is not washed away in baptism.

Another reason for not calling them sacraments is the Baptist belief that they are symbols rather than sacraments. When viewed.church, "sacraments" (from the Latin sacramentum). By the time of Augustine in the fifth century, the notion of the two sacraments is fairly well established." Thus historically, the church has used terms like "the ordinances," "sacraments," and "mysteries" to give baptism and the Lord's Supper this distinctiveness.
