Our goal is God-centered, people-edifying worship services in which we enjoy the elements of worship prescribed in the New Testament: preaching (2 Timothy 4:2), public scripture reading (1 Timothy 4:13), prayer (1 Timothy 2:1-2), congregational singing (Colossians 3:16), the Lord's Supper (1 Corinthians 11:26), and baptism (Matthew 28:19). Our worship services typically last between 1 hour 15 minutes and 1 hour and 30 minutes. Our average sermon length is 50 minutes.
The centerpiece of our worship services is the preaching of the Bible. We emphasize expository preaching in which the main point of the selected portion of scripture is the main point of the sermon. Usually our sermons are series through books of the Bible. This is because God gave His word (2 Timothy 3:16) in the form of the 66 books of the Bible, which is what pastors are supposed to preach (2 Timothy 4:2). This preaching model ensures that scriptural truth is delivered in scriptural context and in scriptural proportions.
We typically sing six worship songs, which are a blend of selections from the Trinity Hymnal (1990 Edition), contemporary hymns, and praise choruses. We employ a variety of musical instruments (piano, guitar, flute, violins, drums, etc.) in order to accompany the congregational singing. We project the lyrics on overhead screens which helps people to lift up their heads and free up their hands while singing.
