Communion is a ritual where Christians partake in the eating of bread and wine usually once a month. The bread represents the physical body of Christ. The wine represents the blood of Christ. The act of taking communion will not save your soul or give you a first class seat to heaven. Communion is not a responsibility or commitment. Communion is a celebration of the gospel.

Much like a wedding ring, baptism is an outward sign of an inward commitment. The person being baptized is identifying with Christ in His death, resurrection, and the forgiveness of our sins. Baptism does not make you a believer; it shows that you are a believer. Baptism is a tangible expression of someone giving their life up to God through Jesus Christ, so that they might live a new life.
