At Ethos, one of the ways we worship is through participation in the taking of the Lord's Supper, also known as Communion. In the Gospels, when Jesus is dining with His disciples shortly before His capture, He took bread that had been broken and drank wine from the cup as symbols of the establishment of His New Covenant; a symbol of His body, broken on the Cross and of His blood that was shed for the forgiveness of our sins which we are incapable of paying ourselves.
"For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes." – 1 Corinthians 11:26
Communion is a weekly practice at Ethos involving simple bread and grape juice. This practice is meant to serve as a reminder that the substitutionary atonement paid by Jesus Christ's death on the Cross and subsequent resurrection from the grave is the primary focal point of our faith and lives.
Ethos practices an open table communion. This means that you do not need to call Coquitlam Alliance your home church; any one who has accepted Jesus Christ as his or her Lord and Savior is welcome to partake.
