Gary North’s wise litmus test for church sacraments

A church has to have sacraments to be a church. If there are no sacraments, it is not a home church; it is a Bible study.

My two cents

The more I think about this, the more I tend to agree. I do however get the impression that some  churches aren’t that big on (weekly) sacraments. I probably need to find a book that documents the history and evolution of sacraments…maybe I could consult the Didache in the meantime.
