Rituals and Worship



Sacred Time

Generally speaking, "sacred time" is not a category of thought in the Baptist tradition, and the tradition has no formally articulated view of it.

Sacred Space

As is the case with sacred time, generally speaking "sacred space" is not a category of thought in the Baptist tradition, and the tradition has no formally articulated view of it.

Rites and Ceremonies

The two primary rites and ceremonies of the Baptist tradition are baptism and communion, or the Lord's Supper.

Worship and Devotion in Daily Life

In the Baptist tradition, both worship and devotion in daily life reflect the characteristic Baptist emphases on the centrality of the Bible and the importance of the individual Christian's direct, immediate relationship with God.

Symbolism

Though symbolism per se is not a predominant category in Baptist thought and worship, there is important symbolism within the tradition, most notably representations of the cross of Jesus Christ, the rites of baptism and the Lord's Supper, and copies of the Bible.
