Scripture teaches that worship includes: Singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs (Ephesians 5:19-20); Thanksgiving (Psalm 35:18); Confession and Repentance (2 Chronicles 7:14; 1 John 1:9); Giving of financial gifts (2 Corinthians 9:7-8) and tithes (Luke 11:42; Malachi 3:10); Preaching of God’s Word (1 Corinthians 14:24-25); Celebration of communion (1 Corinthians 11:23-26). We follow this teaching by incorporating drama, dance, music (choral and instrumental), prayer, responsive scripture readings, testimonies, visual arts, and congregational singing into worship services.
The four worship services (one Saturday night and three Sunday morning services) are identical to reflect the principle in Galatians 3:28 that we are one body: young and old, rich and poor, male and female, urban and suburban, and of many different races and church backgrounds. The diversity of our many parts compels us to include traditional hymns, contemporary choruses, gospel music, international songs (sung in their native languages), and many forms of dance.
We work to create an environment that gives people the freedom to worship God in the ways the Holy Spirit leads, which may include lifting of hands (Psalm 28:2; 119:48; 134:2), bowing (Psalm 95:6), kneeling (Psalm 95:6), clapping (Psalm 47:1), dancing (Psalm 149:3; 150:4), playing of instruments (Psalm 150:3-5), and being still (Psalm 46:10). We pray that people will have freedom of expression without being a stumbling block to others.
