                                                       WORSHIP

 

First of all, when you visit our services, you will find all are greeted with equal courtesy and kindness (Acts 10:34, 35).

Additionally, you will not be confused by many people speaking at the same time. Godly order will prevail at every worship service, as one of the men reverently leads the congregation (1 Corinthians 14:33, 40). No one will be embarrassed or singled out any sort of demonstration or testimony. You will be able to quietly observe and study that which is taught.

These are the things you will find in our worship:
 
 
                                                                                  SINGING
 

"Speaking one to another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord" (Ephesians 5:19).

We use no instruments because we see no authority for them in the New Testament.
 
 
                                                                           THE LORD’S SUPPER
 
 

"For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink the cup, ye proclaim the Lord’s death till he come" (1 Corinthians 11:26).

Every first day of the week we come together and partake of the Lord’s Supper to remember the body and blood of our Lord sacrificed for us (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
 
 
                                                                               PREACHING
 

"Preach the word; be urgent in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching (2 Timothy 4:2).

A lesson is also presented during the assembly, normally from the evangelist.
 
 
                                                                             CONTRIBUTION
 

"Upon the first day of the week let each one of you lay by him in store, as he may prosper, that no collection be made when I come" (1 Cor. 16:2).

We also provide the opportunity for the members of the congregation to give to the church to keep its work going. We do not raise money any other way. Visitors are not expected to give in the contribution.
