As you join us for a worship service we trust that you observe that we seek to glorify God through reverent worship and the faithful preaching of his Word. We seek to make all our services challenging to the mind and heart and spiritually meaningful, but we make no attempt to entertain. Our worship is God-centered and not man-centered, because we are more interested in pleasing God than man. For this reason, we strive to conduct our worship in the spirit and within the patterns of the Scriptures.
1 Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the LORD!
2 Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart,
3 who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways!
4 You have commanded your precepts to be kept diligently.
5 Oh that my ways may be steadfast in keeping your statutes!
6 Then I shall not be put to shame, having my eyes fixed on all your commandments.
7 I will praise you with an upright heart, when I learn your righteous rules.
8 I will keep your statutes; do not utterly forsake me!
9 How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word.
10 With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments!
11 I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
12 Blessed are you, O LORD; teach me your statutes!
13 With my lips I declare all the rules of your mouth.
14 In the way of your testimonies I delight as much as in all riches.
15 I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways.
16 I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your word.
Our Songs and Hymns
In the choice of our songs and hymns, we pay particular attention to the Biblical content and their musical quality. The mood of our worship is that of “Throne-Room” setting as mandated by New Testament truths. The purpose of singing praise is not that we feel good but that God be glorified.
Scripture Reading and Prayer
We also believe that the reading of the Scriptures is an important part of the worship. Therefore, we read a passage each week from both testaments. Likewise, since the church is called upon to pray, the pastoral prayers are also a vital part of the services.
The Preaching of the Word
The greatest part of the service, however, is given to the preaching of the Word of God. Expository and practically relevant preaching of the Word provides the food which our souls need to grow and mature. We do not preach the opinions of men, but the sure Word of God revealed in the Bible.
Our Prayer Meetings
Our prayer meetings on Wednesday are a time in which we approach the throne of grace to seek His blessing on our own church and to beseech Him for the spread of the gospel in other places.
