John 4:23-24 But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. 4:24 God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."
We want to be those Jesus spoke of in this passage, throughout the week and as we gather together, to declare the excellencies of the One who has called us out of darkness and into His marvelous light (1 Peter 2:9). Our worship is an expression of gratitude and adoration, a response heavenward to God’s just and gracious dealing toward us in Christ.
Those in our Church come from diverse backgrounds, but whatever history we bring with us, our common desire is to come undistracted, with clean consciences, ready to listen to God’s word in teaching and respond to God in praise. At times worship leaders may ask everyone to stand or sit, otherwise you’re at liberty to stand, sit or kneel, raise your hands, clap or prayerfully mediate — the goals isn’t a physical posture but a heart giving God His due.
Worship leaders are expected to lead by example and to be worshippers themselves, mature believers, competent musicians and humble servants. Those who lead in worship are part of the Lion and Lamb covenant community.
