A person who believes in sacraments is a "sacramentalist". Is there a noun for a person who believes in church ordinances instead of sacraments? "Non-sacramentalist" seems odd, as well as too broad in scope. Thanks!

  • Perhaps the term "Rigorist" could be what you are looking for. – Ken Graham May 25 '17 at 12:00

    This looks more like a question about English Language & Usage than about Christianity. – Lee Woofenden May 25 '17 at 16:39

    Lee -- good suggestion! I asked it here only because there's a good amount of theological understanding baked into the question, that might be lost on a language-only site. – Travis May 25 '17 at 18:02

There doesn't appear to be such a word. If an ordinant is someone who performs ordinances, i.e., one who ordains, then ordinantalist would be likely the word for one who believes in ordinances.
