Our Leadership

Conducting a Pastor Search


Worship

Worship comes from the Greek word proskyneo and its Hebrew equivalent shachac. Both of these terms refer to a posture of submission and thus an acknowledgement of God's sovereignty. The word worship is also derived from the Old English word weordscipe meaning worthiness or meritoriousness and thus giving God the recognition He deserves.

One of the terms that I personally use when referring to worship is an attitude of gratitude. Worship takes place apart from the temple of God, however, God does not intend that worship be connected with a place, but with the heart attitude. John 4:23-24 says, "But the hour is coming, and now is, when true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth." There is no other way to worship Him but in spirit and in truth. James 4:8 tells us to "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you" There is a drawing near to God that is holy, there is a drawing near to God that is righteous.

Worship is one of our weapons of war that have been given to us. Worship will take you to a place in God where your current situations will be minimized, because of the simple fact, that God is being magnified. As we worship, we are placing God above our problems. As we lift our hands, we are saying God you take it, because you are so much greater. As we kneel before Him in adoration and honor, He is there. I encourage you to submit to the Spirit of God and allow your worship to go to a greater dimension, for God is worthy of it.
