A topic that is no stranger to the College of Theology, communion, baptism and other sacraments are discussed on this week’s Trending Faith.

Dean of the College of Theology Jason Hiles, PhD, emphasized the importance of these sacraments. “These are outward signs of an inward reality.”

Grand Canyon University Pastor and Dean of Students Tim Griffin wanted to emphasize that this right belongs to the church. GCU wants to encourage students to grow in their own faith communities to practice these sacraments.

“We allow for a range of opinions on these,” continued Dr. Hiles. Classes ran through the college emphasize honest discussion and conversation about these practices and what they mean for various denominations and faith backgrounds.

Watch the full conversation below:

Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world.

For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.
