When it comes to baptism and the Lord's Supper, many Baptists reject the language of sacrament. As a people of the book, the logic goes, Baptists must not let tradition supersede the Bible So Baptists tend to view baptism and Communion as ordinances and symbols, not sacraments But the history of Baptists and the sacraments is complicated In Amidst Us Our Beloved Stands, Michael A G Haykin argues that earlier Baptists, such as Charles Spurgeon, stood closer to Reformed sacramental thought than most Baptists today do More than mere memorials, baptism and Communion have spiritual implications that were celebrated by Baptists of the past Haykin calls for a renewal of sacramental life in churches today— Baptists can and should be sacramental.
