"Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness." Psalm 29:2
The worship of Almighty God is the highest calling of man. Indeed, it is why we were created. As we contemplate the grace of God that has saved us from a life of rebellion, self righteousness, and sin, we cannot help but "shout for joy to God" and "sing the glory of His name" (Psalm 66:1-2). We were once enemies of God, lost in darkest night, bound for hell. But God has made us alive together with Christ (Ephesians 2:4). In response to His unfailing love we delight to gather Lord's Day by Lord's Day to worship God and give him the glory due His name.
We believe that God has the priority in setting the terms for how He will be worshipped and He has told us how we must worship Him in His Word. Our worship of God must be "in Spirit and truth," "with reverence and awe," and filled with joy (John 4:24; Hebrews 12:28-29; Psalm 100:1). We worship God according to His Word. This means that our services are saturated with Scripture from beginning to end. We read the Bible, sing the Bible, pray the Bible, preach the Bible, and see the Bible (in the sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper). As we worship God according to Scripture He promises to bless us, draw near to us, comfort us, sanctify us, and fill us with joy inexpressible and filled with glory.
