Beyond the nave, you will find the lectern (to rea…d the bible from), the priest's seat and prayer stall, and pulpit, from which the sermon is preached, all situated in the area called the chancel . Sometimes the chancel is separated from the nave by a screen called a rood screen . If there is a choir that sits regularly in the chancel, this area is sometimes called the choir . Further towards the end again and you come to the communion rails, at which church members kneel to receive the bread and wine during communion. Beyond the rails is the area known as the sanctuary where the communion table (or 'altar') is situated. Larger churches also have transepts - areas that jutt out of the chancel either side so that the floor area of the church resembles a cross. Also, beyond the sanctuary in some churches (especially Roman Catholic Churches), and behind the sanctuary, is a semicircular part that usually houses a chapel dedicated to the Virgin Mary. This is known as an apse . ( Full Answer )

In order to be sure, talk to your priest or catechist to determine if through the RCIA program you need to be baptized… or not. ( Full Answer )

The English word 'church' can mean a building used for Christian worship, or it can mean the congregation, the collective body of Christian worshippers, either globally or those that regularly meet together for worship in/at a particular location or in a particular country. The word 'church' stem…s from the Greek word kyriakon * (= of the Lord), and was applied to a group of people 'of the Lord', and to a building 'of the Lord.' The Greek word kyriakon became kyriake , which became kirk in Northern England and Scotland; cerkov in Russia; and criky in Old Church Slavonic. The Old English word written cirice (meaning "church") seems to have been the English version/spelling of kyrikae. And the word cirice evolved into the word with which we are more familiar: 'church.' Evidence that the word 'church' originally meant 'congregation' (body of worshippers) can be found in the references to a ' church in a house ' in these Bible verses: . "Likewise greet the church that is in their house ." -Romans 16:5 (KJV, 1611) . "Salute the brethren which are in Laodicia, and Nymphas, and the church which is in his house. " -1 Thess 4:15 (KJV) (See also Matthew 18:17; Acts 5:11; 14:27; 20:28; 1 Cor 15:23; 2 Cor 16:19; Col 1:18) FOOTNOTE * kyrios is Greek for lord or ruler. . ( Full Answer )

Roman Catholic congregations around the world are divided into regional areas called diocese, or in cases where there is a higher number of Catholics in the population, archdiocese. These are lead by a bishop or archbishop. Each congregation within each diocese/archdiocese is led by a priest. This p…riest is called the pastor of that church. The pastors are appointed by the bishop of the diocese/archdiocese, and are not bound to one church, but may be transferred from congregation to congregation as the bishop sees fit. Every priest in a diocese answers to their bishop. Every bishop and archbishop is appointed directly by the Pope, who is the head of the Catholic Church and believed by Catholics to be the successor of St. Peter, the first pope. It is this way that the Roman Catholic Church traces its roots directly back to Jesus and claims to be the one true Church. The succession of every bishop and archbishop can also be traced directly back to Peter. ( Full Answer )

Possibly the most famous example is Psalm 23: "The Lord is my shepherd...", but there's also a passage in the Book of the Revelation that refers to dividing the "sh…eep" (the followers of God) from the "goats" (those who didn't follow God). Referring to a congregation as a "flock" is simply an extension of this idea. ( Full Answer )

No. The Congregational Church did not exist until John Owen wrote "The Characteristics of a New Testament Church." He wrote it in reaction to the Salem Witch Trials. Since Congregationalism did not yet exist, the pilgrims were not Congregationalists. At the same time they left Holland, the Arminia…ns were being persecuted. While they do not mention being sympathetic to the Arminians, a connection probably existed or was suspected between the two groups. So, their teachings were probably closer to Methodist than to Puritan or Congregational. ( Full Answer )
