Worship is the stage upon which the divine drama of redemption is played out. Our desire is for our worship to reflect both the reverence for God (Ps. 29:2) and the joy of the gospel (Luke 2:20). We revere God because He is holy (Isa. 6:3). We are filled with joy because of how the gospel frees and changes us (Acts 3:8). When you worship with us, you can expect to see rich theology embodied in God-centered worship that engages our hearts (Acts 2:37).
United with other believers, the church throughout history, angels, and all the company of heaven we offer praise to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Our worship is a foretaste of the heavenly bliss we will enjoy when we enter into His presence eternally (Rev. 5:9-13).
The special ways that God gives us His grace, the Word and the Sacraments (the Lord’s Supper and baptism), are the focus of our worship (Acts 2:42). The preaching of the Word is straight from the Bible and the sermons are Christ-centered. The Lord’s Supper affects our hearts and renews our dependence on God and is celebrated weekly (I Cor. 11:23-26).
Surrounding the Word and the Supper is our participation in praise through corporate confession of our sins, the assurance of the pardon of God in Christ Jesus, offerings, and the singing of praise in Biblical styles (1Cor. 14:26, 33, 40) that reflect the gifts God has bestowed upon our particular Body. We strive to worship God by music with lyrics reflecting the timeless propositional truth of Scripture regardless of the era in which the music and lyrics were written. Our praise is designed to glorify God through the edification of His saints by focusing all present on the message of Jesus Christ and Him crucified (I Cor. 1:23; 2:2).
Biblical, Reformed, and gospel-driven worship glorifies God, transcends style, edifies the church, and evangelizes the unbeliever (John 16:8; Rom 10:14-17).
But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. Heb. 12:22-24
