Ordinance is a Protestant Christian term for baptism, communion and other religious rituals. Some Protestants do not call them sacraments because they believe these rituals are outward expressions of faith, rather than impartations of God's grace.

While a sacrament is seen as something in and of itself sacred, an ordinance is a practice that merely demonstrates the participants faith. The ordinances are observed in remembrance of Jesus, primarily his baptism and the last supper (communion or eucharist).
