When you visit us you will find the oldest worship on earth…is brand new.
We pray together out loud
because…In the Bible we read, “they lifted up their voice to God with one accord…” Acts 4:24
We lift our hands in praise
because…In the Bible we read, “Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord.” Psalm 134:2
We sing with all our hearts
because…In the Bible we read, “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.” Psalm 98:4
We play musical instruments
because…In the Bible we read, “…and all the house of Israel played before the Lord on all manner of instruments…” II Samuel 6:5
We clap and shout unto God
because…In the Bible we read, …O clap your hands all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.” Psalm 47:1
We dance in the spirit
because…In the bible we read, “…Praise Him with the timbrel and dance: praise Him with stringed instruments and organs.” Psalm 150:4
We testify publicly
because..In the Bible we read, “I will declare thy name unto my brethren; in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.” Psalm 22:22
We anoint with oil for divine healing
because…In the Bible we read, “Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.” James 5:14
We allow the operation of the spiritual gifts
because…In the Bible we read, “When ye come together, everyone of you has a psalm, has a doctrine, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation…” 1 Corinthians 14:26
