Worship With Us

Do you want to learn more about our worship services and classes? Then, you are in the right spot to join us for worship!

Our congregation ensures that our worship is rendered to God with all reverence and godly fear in accordance to the scripture as worship is a display of reverence to God. We believe that worship is the act of giving all praise, honor, and glory to the object of our worship- God (Hebrews 12:28). 

"But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for the father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit:and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. "

Tyndale Life Application Study Bible / John 4:23-24
Worship In Spirit & Truth 

We worship in accordance to the pattern laid out for the first century church by worshipping in spirit and truth (John 4:23). Jesus explained that truth comes from  the word of God (John 17:17). True worship is more than sincerity alone although sincere worship is the only acceptable worship God will accept. In Acts 22:3-8 and 23:1, we learn that Saul was sincere in his persecution of Christians, but he was sincerely wrong. Sincere worship is not based on our thoughts or beliefs of what is acceptable rather it is based on the instruction of the Bible. It is important to mention that we accept the Bible as the truth and the inspired word of God. We know that our thoughts are not God thoughts and our ways are not God's (Isaiah 55:8). Even when we think an act of worship is pure and beautiful, We recognize that those acts if different from God's instruction are unacceptable in the eyes of our Lord (Matthew 15:9, Revelations 22:18-19, and Galatians 1:8-9)

"Sanctify them through thy truth: Thy Word Is Truth"

King James Bible / John 17:17
The New Testament Pattern of Worship

Our worship is according to the clear and consistent pattern revealed in Scripture (2 Timothy 1:13). The church or the Ekklesia is the called-out body of believers is commanded to come together as a collective assembly and to edify on another (1 Corinthians 11:17-20, 33-34; 1 Corinthians 14:26). Additionally, scripture teaches in Hebrews 10:25 that Christians should not "forsake the assembling of yourselves together." The New Testament church came together upon the first day of the week to worship in spirit and truth (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 2:14-17). The children of Israel observed the sabbath as the seventh day of the week and this observance was removed at the cross ( Colossians 2;14-17). Additionally, Paul instructed the church at Corinth that " God is not the author of confusion but of peace" and urged them to worship in an orderly manner. Paul further instructs the church in 1 Corinthians 14:40 that our worship should be done "decently and in order". To that end the apostles consistently taught the church the simple plan of worship that is comprised of five acts of worship: Prayer, Preaching/Teaching, Singing, The Lord's Supper, and Giving. 

Five Acts of Worship

You will notice that we practice all five act of worship through Prayer, Preaching/Teaching, Singing, The Lord's Supper, and Giving. 

  1. Prayer. We understand the importance of prayer in not only our worship but our daily lives as seen in the scriptures ( Acts 2:42; 12:5,12; 16: 25; 20:36; 1 Thessalonians 5:17; 1 Timothy 2:1-3; and Romans 8:26). We know that Acts 2:42 teaches that the church at Jerusalem "continued steadfastly in the apostles doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. Furthermore,  Paul in 1 Corinthians 14:15  instructs us to pray and sing with the spirit and with understanding. 
  2. Preaching/Teaching. Through consistent and constant teaching and preaching the church is able to " grow up in all things into him who is the head, Christ Jesus" (Ephesians 4:15).  There are many other scriptures that emphasize the importance of teaching and preaching in the local church that include the following: Acts 2:42; 20:7; 1 Corinthians 14:26; Galatians 1:8-9; 1 Timothy 2:12; Titus 2:3-4; and 1 Corinthians 1:21.
  3. Singing. Our acapella song service not only praises God, but it also strengthens, edifies, and teaches each member. The bible teaches us in Ephesians 5:19 that this is accomplished through "speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord". Paul further explains in Colossians 3:16 hat singing involves "teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. God word authorizes us in Ephesians 5:19 to sing while "making melody in your heart to the Lord". The music authorized is song and the instrument we are to use is our heart. Singing is an important part of the edification and worship of the local church.
  4. The Lord's Supper. We know that Christ instituted the Lord's Supper the night that he was betrayed (Matthew 26:26-28) and then later Paul explained that it was to be done in remembrance of Christ (1 Corinthians 11:24-25). Paul writes "as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death till he comes" (I Corinthians 11:26). For the Child of God, partaking of the Lord's Supper is such a magnificent privilege. The unleavened bread (His Body) and fruit of the vine (His Blood) are a spectacular reminder of the sacrifice a loving creator and obedient savior made on the behalf of all mankind. Christ death on the cross not only paid for our sins but provided a way for us to be reconnected to our heavenly Father. The Lord's supper is to be taken on the "first day of the week" as this is when we read that the disciples came together in Acts 20:7. Additionally, we learn that the first day of the week was the day the saints gathered together (1 Corinthians 16:1-2).
  5. Giving. The local church gives to collect the funds required to fulfill its God-given mission- seek and save the lost, teach the gospel of Christ, keep the saints saved, and maintain the unity in the bonds of peace. We read that our giving must be done cheerfully and with regular consistency (2 Corinthians 9:7 and 1 Corinthians 16: 1-2).
