Join us Sundays for Worship at 10:30 am

Sunday Worship

One of our values of being a Gospel-centered church is worship, a Christian's highest calling.  Each Sunday believers from along the Gulf Coast gather to rehearse what we will do perfectly one day in eterity - worship the most High Triune God. 

On Sundays, we are the church "gathered" for two purposes: word and worship.

  1. Word. Because the Bible is the true story of God’s redemptive work culminating in the person and work of Jesus Christ, we are devoted to bending our ears, hearts and lives to the teaching of Scripture. This means that a large portion of our Sunday gathering is committed to passionate, intelligent, gospel-centered teaching for believers, seekers, and skeptics.
  2. Worship. Worship is about bringing glory to God and experiencing the power of God. The longing of the human heart is to come in contact with a God who is transcendent yet very present in the midst of human brokenness. Because of this we will cultivate an atmosphere on Sunday of both joyful expression and reverent awe.

Elements of Worship

Worship services are designed with many elements incorporated as directed from the Scriptures including the public reading of God's Word; singing Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs; prayers of adoration, confession, supplication, and thanksgiving; giving of tithes and offerings; and the centrality of the preaching of God's Word.

Other elements of worship that are a regular part of worship include monthly communion and frequent corporate confession of the Nicene and Apostle’s creeds as well as the Westminster and Heidelberg catechisms.

Dialogue

In corporate worship we are in an intimate public dialogue with our Creator and Redeemer. He speaks to us, and we respond to Him — back and forth — during the entire service. The “worship leaders” (liturgists) speak to us on behalf of God by calling us to worship, to pray, to give, and to give careful attention to the reading of the Word of God. The "worshippers" (the congregation) respond to God's invitation to worship Him through singing, reading of scripture, prayer, and personal response. God is alive and present with us, and He invites us into intimate conversation and communion.

Music

Music is an important element of worship each service.  Vocalists and instrumentalists lead the congregation in music that is Biblically directed, theologically sound, and musically uplifting.  Kidz Praize (our children's choir) meets throughout the year to practice for singing special music in morning worship.  Other vocal ensembles meet throughout the year to prepare for seasonal special music.
