Our church assembles on the Lord’s Day (Sunday) in order to offer God public praise (i.e. worship), which is at the same time our public witness to the community. This public worship is Trinitarian, directed to God the Father, in the name of God the Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, and through the power of God the Holy Spirit.
The activities (or elements) through which our worship is expressed are prayer (including prayers of praise, thanksgiving, confession, illumination, petition, and benediction), sung praise (both psalms and hymns), the reading and preaching of Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, and the administration of the sacraments. Our worship is simple: we pray the word, sing the word, read the word, preach the word, and receive the “visible word” in the sacraments.
