Preaching & Worship
We believe that preaching is more than just "sharing a message". We believe the Lord, the Holy Spirit, especially blesses the humble act of preaching (1 Corinthians 1:21) for the conversion of sinners and the growth of God's people in faith, hope and love. Worship is the church actually meeting with God and renewing the covenant relation we have with Him, and thus God Himself speaks to the church through faithful preaching! Our pastor generally preaches through one book of the Bible at a time, so that the full range of biblical truth is covered. His sermons are carefully prepared and passionately delivered, with trust in the Holy Spirit to be the true Teacher.
We seek to plan our worship services according to the simple example we see in the New Testament: the reading and preaching of God's Word, the sacred acts of Baptism and the Lord's Supper, serious and joyful praying, the adoration of God through the offering of tithes, offerings and vows, and the robust singing of psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Because our worship is before God and for God, we seek to use the best music of Christian history and hymnody.
For us, Sunday, the Christian Sabbath or "the Lord's Day" is truly the "Queen of Days", a day of rest, reflection, joy and worship. Worship is the best part of this best day, as it prepares us for the glory and joy of Heaven, where we will worship God in blessing and glory unspeakable.
The best way to understand worship is to do it! Join us for morning worship this Sunday at 11:00 a.m.
