WHAT TO EXPECT
The church revealed in the New Testament met on the 1st day of every week (Acts 20:7).
In their worship, they followed the specific directions of the apostles on how to worship (Acts 2:42).
Determined to follow their example of worship, we invite you to visit our services and with us, follow the Bible's simple guidelines for worship.
Upon visiting the assembly here, you should see:
Public Reading from the Bible
That magnifies our faith in God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit
Prayers offered to God through Jesus
Consisting of praise, thanksgiving, confession, and requests.
II Timothy 3:16-17
I Corinthians 14:15
Ephesians 5:20 and 6:18
2 Corinthians 1:11
Preaching from God's Word
We believe the Bible is right. We speak when the Bible speaks and are silent when the Bible is silent.
II Timothy 4:2
I Corinthians 1:23
Sharing with other Christians
This we do in the remembrance of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ through the Lord's Supper.
I Corinthians 11:23-29
Time for reflection to consider the blessings of God, along with an opportunity to give monetarily. Guests are not expected to participate, but are welcomed should they choose to do so.
I Corinthians 16:1-2
II Corinthians 8 & 9
Invitation to respond to God's word
During the invitation song at the end of the sermon. Responses may include requests for prayer (James 5:16) or a public confession of loyalty to Christ (Matthew 10:32-33), repentance of your sins determining a change in one's lifestyle to reflect commitment to Christ (Luke 13:3, Acts 17:30), and a desire to become a child of God through baptism.
