Our Worship: Joyful, Reverent, God-Centered     

We firmly believe that man’s chief end is “to glorify God and enjoy him forever” (WSC 1). To that end we strive to make our worship joyful, reverent and God-centered . Every aspect of our worship is guided by Biblical principles.
It is our sincere hope and prayer that the saving presence, power, love and authority of our King and Savior is known by all who worship with us.

Joyful: Psalm 37:4 commands, “Delight yourself in the Lord,” a command we take quite seriously! God himself is our chief joy and delight. In our worship we delight ourselves in the Lord through “psalms and hymns and spiritual songs” (Colossians 3:16).  We enjoy singing together as a congregation.  Our musical team blends the traditional and contemporary; and our focus is always on God. We delight ourselves in his Word as we hear Scripture read and preached. Our joy is also fed by the truths of the Gospel, the “good news of great joy” (Luke 2:10) that declares salvation is through Christ.  

Reverent: Hebrews 12:28-29 states, “Let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.” When we enter into God’s presence to worship, the majesty and holiness of God is ever before us. Because God is God, and there is no other like him, we stand before him in reverence and awe.

God-Centered: The triune God is the singular focus of our worship. While we are indeed nourished and challenged to grow during the worship service, our ultimate goal is to honor God by glorifying him.


Honoring God's Word in Our Worship

The Word of God is precious to us, and we seek to honor it as we worship. Our worship, therefore, is not only guided by Scripture, but filled with Scripture as well. During our worship God’s Word is read, preached, and sung. Because we cherish God’s Word we value expository preaching. Our pastor regularly preaches through books of the Bible and each week he seeks to explain and apply Scripture to our lives. Ultimately, we honor God’s Word because it gives us a full revelation of Christ and his gospel.

We use the English Standard Version (ESV) of the Bible in our worship.
