What To Expect
Our worship is reserved for God alone. It is offered to Him in spirit and in truth. Real worship comes from the heart as well as the lips. We come together on the first day of each week to remember the death of Christ by partaking of the Lord’s Supper. Prayer, singing, giving and preaching are also a part of our worship each Lord’s Day. Unlike many churches, we do not use musical instruments in our worship, just as they were not used by the church of Christ you read about in the Bible. Though musical instruments were authorized by God for worship in the Old Testament, they were not authorized by God for worship in the church of the New Testament.
Matthew 4:10 “Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.”
Acts 20:7 “Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight. “
1 Corinthians 16:1-2 “Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so you must do also: On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come.”
Colossians 3:16-17 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”
