Our services are quietly devout and designed to draw worshippers closer to God and enable each one to grow in knowledge and understanding of His will while edifying and encouraging one another. When you visit with us, you will notice that our services are very simple and orderly.
Our desire and purpose is to be governed in all things by the word of God alone in every aspect of our lives. We do not ask anyone to believe or practice anything but what is found in Christ's teaching for us today. You will notice this to be true in our assemblies. Everything we do can be found in the New Testament scriptures. When we come together, we sing: (Ephesians 5:19), pray (1 Timothy 2:1-2), partake of the Lord's Supper (1 Corinthians 11:23-29), give of our money (1 Corinthians 16:1-2), and listen to the preaching of the word of God (Romans 10:17). These acts of worship are satisfying and unquestionably right. Financial contributions are not expected from our visitors.
The two aspects of our worship that will probably seem different to you are the absence of instrumental music and the weekly observance of the Lord's supper. In both cases we are striving to follow the Lord's pattern for His church. In the Bible (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16) we read that Christians in the New Testament sang psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs and that the melody was made in the heart. We encourage all to join their voices in praise to God and in teaching and admonishing one another in song. The first century church met on the first day of the week to remember the Lord's death (Acts 20:7). Since each week has a first day, we observe this memorial (as they did) on the first day of every week.
