Worship

Our worship band goes under the label “Original Worship.”  For a full explanation and vision of our worship in music ministry, please read the info below and the info in the tabs or click the “Original Worship” document.  We desire to exalt Jesus Christ and fill our souls with joy through the music and lyrics of worship.  We have been blessed with some wonderfully gifted musicians who love the Lord and are passionate about music.  They lead us weekly in our Sunday service.  We have labeled our style is “soulfully modern.”  There are plans for “Original Worship” to do some recording.

Original Worship

A. He is the originator of worship.

Isaiah 43:7 “everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.”

Exodus 34:14 “(for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God),”

Did God originate worship because He is needy?  No.  He instituted worship for two reasons.

  1. Because He is infinitely superior and greater than any other being.  He is the eternal God to whom all of creation depends on and owes its existence to.  To not worship is to ignore the very one on whom our next breathe depends.  It is only natural and fitting for God to institute worship.
  2. Because he wanted to bless us.  When we worship He is glorified and we are blessed.  We are made to worship.  When we worship God, we find our very reason for existing. 

John Piper- “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.” 

Robert Harden -“God is the only being who can receive worship for the benefit of the one worshipping.”

B.  He is the original object of worship.

Before Satan’s heart was found to be with sin, before there was humanity immersed in wickedness, before there was an idol in any form, God alone was worshipped.  He calls us to come back and worship only Him, the way it originally was!
