Supper is in part a witness that you repent of your sins, believe that
Jesus Christ is your righteousness and desire to live a new and godly

doctrinal unity (Acts 2:42), the elders supervise the partaking of the
sacrament. Visitors from other denominations must request permission
from the Council.
