We gather together in worship for three primary reasons.

To joyfully give Praise to the Father

Psalm 87:2, 100; Acts 4:32-37; 1 Corinthians 14:26; Colossians 3:16
“Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!” Psalm 100:3-4

Black Line

To Faithfully Declare the Gospel of Christ

Acts 2:42; 1 Corinthians 2:1-2; Colossians 1:28-29; 2 Timothy 4:1-2
“And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” 1 Corinthians 2:1-2

Black Line

To Sacrificially Serve One Another in the Spirit

Romans 12:4-6, 9-13; 1 Corinthians 12:4-7; Galatians 6:1-2; Colossians 3:12-13; 1 Peter 4:8-11
“Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.” 1 Corinthians 12:4-7

“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.” Colossians 3:12-14
