Acts 2:42 is a foundational verse for the original church, the modern church, and our church fellowship in particular, “And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.”
We have been called to LOVE the Lord first, fellow believers and unbelievers second, and ourselves last. In our services, we focus on a personal relationship with God through song, worship, prayer, and the teaching of the Word of God. We teach mainly expository, but also topical studies. We do not allow speaking loudly in tongues or the interruption of our services with prophecy if there is a Bible study in progress. It is not that we do not hold to the using of these gifts, but we believe that everything should be done decently and in order. We believe that God will not interrupt Himself. We have specific “believers’ meetings” or “afterglows” that do allow the exercise of spiritual gifts in accordance with 1 Corinthians 12-14.
We believe the Worship of God should be Spiritual.
Therefore: We remain flexible and yielded to the leading of the Holy Spirit to direct our worship.
We believe the Worship of God should be inspirational.
Therefore: We give a great place to music in our worship.
We believe the Worship of God should be intelligent.
Therefore: Our services are designed with great emphasis upon the teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He would be worshipped.
We believe the Worship of God is fruitful.
Therefore: We look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have truly been worshipping Him.
