Worship begins when the HEART bows and lifts its eyes to the Creator and Redeemer, yielded in submission, surrender and reverence.
Worship is more than a song. It is equally an activity and an attitude, a melody of praise and a heart of humility, a moment of devotion and a LIFESTYLE of obedience.
Worship can only happen when the heart has been empowered and enlivened by the SPIRIT of God.
When the heart has been enlivened by the Spirit of God, it longs to release an expression of praise. We exalt God as we EXULT in Him.
In worship, we MAGNIFY God, we “boast” in the glory and truth of who He is and what He has done.
Worship should CHANGE us. As we gaze upon the glory of the Lord, we are transformed by the impact of His presence upon our lives.
Worship brings us FACE to face with our own sinfulness, and carries us to the foot of the cross where we encounter Christ’s grace, mercy and forgiveness.
Biblical worship always lifts high the CROSS of Christ, and finds its climax in the Gospel, that is, in the atoning work of God through Christ on our behalf.
