God is worthy
of all praise (Psalm 95:6). He commands everyone to worship Him (Psalm 96:9). Therefore, we gather together to render to Him the praise of our hearts and to be instructed in His Word. We worship out of love and thankfulness for the great gift of salvation in His Son.
We worship as He has commanded in the Bible
(Psalm 29:2). We believe Sunday is a day set apart from all other days. On this day we gather together twice in formal, public worship. These services are conducted with reverence, in the historical Reformed way, which reflects our consciousness of being in the presence of the Almighty God. Central in every service is the preaching of God’s Word. The preaching is the chief means by which God gives grace to His people, and calls us to constant repentance and faith in Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 1:18-21).
Our children worship God with us.
Jesus blesses the children of the parents who bring them to Him (Mark 10:13-16). Central to the calling to instruct our children in the fear of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4) is to have them with us under the preaching. The Holy Spirit uses the pure preaching of God’s Word to save us and our children. Thus God strengthens us in His grace and knowledge (II Peter 3:18).
