We Delight in God’s Worship

  1. Membership Vow #4                      
  • Do you promise to support the church in its worship to the best of your ability?
  1. Core Value: WORSHIP
  • Core Value: We believe that the gospel liberates and compels us to worship and cherish the one, true, living God.
  • Outcome: We will be spiritually renewed and refreshed by regular, transforming encounters with the living God (both corporate and personal).
  1. Scriptural Support
  • 1 Thessalonians 1:8 – For they themselves report concerning us the kind of reception we had among you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God.
  • John 4:23-24 – But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.
  • 1 Peter 2:9-10 – But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
  • Revelation 7:9-10 – After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
