For many people today, the Lord's Supper is the most important and significant act of the Sunday assembly when the church gathers to worship. Many of those who consider it significant, however, have little or no knowledge of its rich biblical and historical background, while even fewer have given thought to its theological foundation. There is a great need today for renewal in the area of corporate Christian worship and particularly in the church's participation in the Lord's Supper.
