Sacraments are "outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace, given by Christ as sure and certain means by which we receive that grace" (Book of Common Prayer, page 357). A sacrament, then, is an outward, tangible act, which is the sign of an inward, spiritual reality.
Holy Baptism and The Holy Eucharist are the two sacraments that are central in the church's worship, because Christ himself gave them to this church.
Holy Baptism is the act through which Christ incorporates a new Christian into his church. It establishes an intimate relationship with God through Christ and promises a life of growth in faithfulness and grace.
The Holy Eucharist is "the principal act of Christian worship on the Lord's Day and other major Feasts" and the primary means by which the church nourishes the life of the faithful, week by week. The first part of the Holy Eucharist centers around the Word of God (scripture readings, sermon, a statement of faith, and prayers), while the second part takes place at the altar, where the body and blood of christ are blessed and shared amonth the faithful.
Five additional events in the life of the church are also notable for their sacramental character. these are Confirmation, Reconciliation of a Penitent, Matrimony, Ordination, and Unction (annointing and praying for the sick).
