GOSPEL-CENTERED WORSHIP, COMMUNITY, SERVICE & MULTIPLICATION 
What is Gospel-centered worship?
Worship begins with revelation. The God of the universe makes Himself known through revelation and humanity is made to respond to such a display with adoration, gratitude, humility, praise, celebration, and wonder. Because humans are naturally sinful, an essential aspect of Worship is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Therefore, Gospel-centered Worship includes a human response to the revelation of God as He makes Himself known as the Savior of sinners.

Humans are made to worship! All of life should be lived in worship to God; indeed there is no aspect of life outside of God’s authority. Worship cannot be quarantined to only this place or that time. However, corporate worship services are the primary occasion for cultivating a worshipful posture for all of our church family.

Each Sunday we remember the Gospel, and the God of our salvation, in singing, preaching, teaching, and prayer. We also see and experience regular symbolic reminders of that singularly marvelous message in the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Communion). Each of these aspects of our worship service provides an opportunity for us to receive, remember, respond, and rejoice.

 

Oh come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker! For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand” (Psalm 95:1-7).
