How We Worship

There has been a trend toward expressive worship in many churches over the recent years. Some churches even offer a special service, deemed a “contemporary service” for these types of expressions. You’ll find, though, that this type of worship is nothing new; it has been a part of Spirit-filled churches since the days of the Apostles. Rather than relegate these moments to a single service once a week, we encourage passionate, open responses to Christ and His Spirit every time we gather.

We sing with all our hearts because in the Bible we read:

“O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.” (Psalms 95:1- KJV)

We clap our hands because in the Bible we read:

“O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.” (Psalm 47:1-KJV)

We lift our hands and praise God aloud because in the Bible we read:

“Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord.” (Psalms 134:2-KJV)

We all pray together because in the Bible we read:

“…they lifted up their voice to God with one accord…” (Acts 4:24- KJV)

We testify publicly because in the Bible we read:

“Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:” (Luke 12:8-KJV)

We speak in unknown languages (tongues) because in the Bible we read:

“And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” (Acts 2:4-KJV)
