In the worship of God, true worshipers are to come before the triune God in Spirit and in truth (John 4:24). God, in his sovereign mercy, has saved us by His grace, and because it is God who saves us, we are to look to Him for guidance on what is acceptable for worship. Therefore, it is the Word of God which is to regulate what we do and how we conduct ourselves in corporate worship. This is our guiding principle in worship—which is sometimes called “The Regulative Principle of Worship” As worshipers, we want to come into God’s presence, only as He commands, and in all of the ways He commands. Passing fads and modern trends find no place in our services as we seek to please God and not men. Therefore our worship is:
The word of God is our rule for proper worship. The Scriptures provide much of the content. The Bible is to be read, preached, believed and obeyed in our worship. The Bible is the center piece of our worship services.
Reverent and Joyful
We come before a God who is mighty, majestic, high and holy. And yet He condescends to us. He stoops down to lovingly and graciously draw us to Himself. Finding forgiveness in Christ, we rejoice in His goodness and mercy. The tone of our worship is both sober and celebratory—respectful and joyful!
Worship is a meeting of the triune God with his covenant people above all else. It is a holy dialogue where God initiates and His people respond. He speaks to us as His people in both the reading and the preaching of His Word and in the sacraments. In turn, God’s people respond with joyful singing, thankful prayer, and cheerful giving.
A Family Event
God calls covenant families to worship Him together as families. Parents are encouraged to train their children to worship God from tender years and bring them into the service. Children are welcome in our services and are encouraged to participate as worshipers of the true and living God.
You are Invited!
Come and join us this coming Lord’s Day! We meet at 10:30 am, and the service generally lasts for an hour to an hour and a half. Our prayer is that you will meet with God through his Word and Spirit.
