Our Worship

 

Why do we stand when we sing?

To honor God’s presence among us. “And the Levites,…of the Children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel with a loud voice on high.” (2 Chron. 20:19)

Why do we clap our hands?

Because we are full of joy over God’s love and care for us.  “O clap your hands all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.” (Psalm 47:1)

Why do we lift our hands?

To bless the Lord and to make Him happy.  “Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord.” (Psalms 134:2; 63:4; 1 Timothy 2:8)

Why Do We Dance?

To celebrate and express our passionate love for God.  “Let them praise his name in the dance” (Psalm 149:3)

Why do we sing in Tongues and in English?

For up-building in spiritual progress and consoling the Church.  “For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is it then? I will pray with the spirit and I will pray with the understanding also; I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.” (1 Corinthians 14:14-15)

Why do we have this type of worship?

Jesus said that the Father desires true worshipers who will worship Him in spirit and in truth.  “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is Spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:23-24)
 

The Sacrament of Marriage

“Boaz took Ruth and she became his wife…”Ruth 4:13.  “…For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife…” Ephesians 5:31.  “Each man should have his own wife, and each woman should have her own husband.”  1 Corinthians 7:2.  “Finally the time came for him to marry her.” Genesis 29:21.  It is our belief that marriage, as ordained by God, must be between one man and one woman.  No other can be performed or condoned.  (Jeremiah 29:6; Romans 7:2; 1 Corinthians 7:39; Genesis 2:23-24; Ephesians 5:22-25)
