1. Worshiping Christ
Christ’s kingdom is advanced where He is worshiped as the only true God. At Christ Church, our worship is characterized by both fear of God and love for Him. Our worship services are sober and joyful as we fervently pray, enthusiastically sing, and unapologetically preach God’s law and His gospel. We strive to preach so that all those who hear might repent of their specific sins and live their whole lives serving and glorifying Christ, rather than themselves, the world, or the devil. We obey our Lord’s command to baptize new disciples, and we regularly proclaim His death and the fellowship we have with Him and with one another through Him in our celebration of the Lord’s Supper.
John 4:23–24“An hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
John 1:18“No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known.” (ESV)
Romans 15:5–6“Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
