Over the past few weeks we’ve been focusing on the ministry of Word and sacrament. On this program, we’ll begin to discuss some of the differences between Reformed, Lutheran, Anglican, and Baptist views on the nature and meaning of a sacrament. Should we even use this word? When it comes to baptism, should we think of this rite as a mere sign, or as a means of grace? Is it something that believers do in order to testify to the world that they are now Christians, or is it something that God has ordained in order to unite us to Jesus Christ?
