Worship is the purpose for which we are created and is the focus of our life in Christ. God redeemed His people from Egypt and brought them to Himself at Mt. Sinai so that they might worship Him. God in Christ has redeemed His people. We “have not come to a mountain which may be touched…but [we] have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem…to the general assembly and church of the first born who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the Judge of all…and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant…” (Hebrews 12:18-24).
Worship, therefore, is coming into the presence of God and to give Him the praise that is due to His Name. Worship is also covenantal. God speaks to us through His Word. This is seen in the Call to Worship, the Reading of the Word, the Preaching of the Word and the Benediction. We respond with prayer, praise, confession, offerings and hearing the Word.
We also celebrate the sacraments, those visible Words that communicate to us God’s grace and by which we are either brought into the covenant or nourished in the covenant. The covenant teaches us that baptism is to be applied to believers and their children. The Lord’s Supper, which we celebrate the first Sunday of every month, is for those believers who have been baptized and are members of Bible believing churches.
We invite you to join with us in the worship of our God.
