Praise & Worship Info

Praise is exalting (glorifying, praising, or honoring) God for who He is and what He has done.  Worship is humbly bowing down before God because He is worthy.

The purpose of our Praise and Worship ministry is to help fully, functioning followers of Christ to have a heart that is turned over to God daily in a devotional time of:

Meditation on the Word
1 Timothy 4:15
Philippians 4:8-9
Psalms 19:14
Psalms 1:1-2

Prayer to the Father
1 Thessalonians 5:17
Matthew 6:9-13
Romans 8:26
Luke 18:1-8

Praising the Lord
Acts 2:47
Hebrews 13:15
Luke 19:37-38
Psalms 146:1-2

We intentionally present scriptures, pray and prayers, and exhibit attitudes that praise, adore, and elevate God and/or the assembly.  We believe people should be free to express their humility before God, praises, brokenness, and freedom in Christ.  (Galatians 5:1, II Corinthians 3:17)

The Five Phases Of Our Worship
Praising, praying, preaching, prosperity (giving), partaking (The Lord's Supper), and provoking people to love and do good works is included in our theology of worship (Acts 2:47, Hebrews 10:19-25).  Our methodology is to use five phases as illustrated below:

Entrance (Phase One) 5-10 minutes
Enter His gates with thanksgiving (Psalm 100:4) with inspirational song, scripture, and prayer of invocation

Exaltation (Phase Two) 20-25 minutes
Glorify the Lord with me, let us exalt His name together (Psalm 34:3) with praises, prayers and passages

Edification (Phase Three) 10-15 minutes
Let all things be done unto edifying (1 Corinthians 14:26) with communion, collection and community

Education (Phase Four) 30-50 minutes
"...speak the things which are proper for sound doctrine" (Titus 2:1) with sermon, summons and salvation

Exit (Phase Five) 5-15 minutes
"...when they had sung a hymn, they went out" (Matthew 26:30) with a benedictory song and prayer of blessing
