At our church (SBC) an interim "pastor" is filling the position of pastor. Yesterday, we observed the Lord's Supper (Communion). I have been in Baptist churches (mostly SBC) for about 30 years. The only requirement for communion that I have ever heard given is that a person be saved. The interim said yesterday as he presided over communion that he knew the Scriptures taught clearly that there were two requirements for communion; salvation and baptism. He put this requirement on our fellowship. The head deacon told me that he saw many not take communion. So, from what you have been taught, and know the Scriptures to say, is baptism a requirement for communion?
