Richmond United Methodist Church
Established 1872


Sacraments

The UMC recognizes two sacraments: Holy Baptism and Holy Communion. The Church believes that "Baptism is not only a sign of profession and mark of difference whereby Christians are distinguished from others that are not baptized; but it is also a sign of regeneration or the new birth.

Baptism

The United Methodist Church believes that Baptism is a sacrament in which God initiates a covenant with individuals, people become a part of the Church. Baptism is  not to be repeated, and is a means of grace.  The United Methodist Church generally practices Baptism by sprinkling, pouring, or immersion and recognizes baptisms from other Christian denominations in good standing.

Open Holy Communion

The United Methodist Church affirms the real presence of Christ in Holy Communion, (the bread is an effectual sign of His body crucified on the cross and the cup is an effectual sign of His blood shed for humanity), believes that the celebration is an anamnesis of Jesus’ death, believes the sacrament to be a means of grace, and practices open communion.

Open communion is the practice that allow individuals other than members of that church to receive communion (also called the Eucharist or the Lord's Supper). Membership in United Methodist Church is not required. In the United Methodist Church, open communion is referred to as the Open Table.
