  • Worship

    Julie Harvey-8430

    Did you know we were created to praise God!

    Psalm 150:6 says ‘Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord’.

    When we come together as church family in worship we desire to exalt God, elevate God, experience God, encounter God, enjoy God and expect God to move by His Holy Spirit. Our role as the worship team is to lead people in to the presence of God by encouraging them to press in in worship to give praise to God and receive fresh revelation from Him. One of our favourite verses is John 4:23 - ‘yet a time is coming and has come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth, they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks’.

    Worship is our outward expression of love, thanks and adoration we have for God. Above all we want to worship God with all our being and give Him the praise and glory for the wonders we have seen and will continue to see in our individual lives and church life.

    Statement of Doctrine
    1. The Unity of the Godhead and the divine co-equality of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; the Sovereignty of God in creation, providence and redemption.
    2. The true and proper Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ; His Virgin Birth: His real and perfect manhood; the authority of His teaching and infallibility of all His utterances; His work of atonement for sinners of mankind by His vicarious sufferings, His death, His bodily resurrection and His ascension into Heaven; His present priestly intercession for His people.
    3. The full inspiration of the Holy Scriptures; their authority and sufficiency as not only containing but being in themselves the Word of God; the reliability of the New Testament in its testimony to the character and authorship of the Old Testament; and the need of the teach of the Holy Spirit to a true and spiritual understanding of the whole.
    4. The reality of original sin in consequence of the fall and the necessity of regeneration.
    5. The justification of the sinner solely by faith through the atoning merits of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
    6. The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit in conversion and sanctification; also in ministry in worship and in the exercising of spiritual gifts through the body of believers.
