Bible Term: Sacrament

A sacrament is a religious rite or Christian ceremony. The two common, and universally recognized, sacraments are baptism and communion (also called the Lord’s Supper, Holy Communion, or the Eucharist).

Some Christians have defined a total of seven sacraments: baptism, communion, confirmation, marriage, reconciliation, the anointing, and holy orders.
