I worship You Almighty God; there is none like You. I worship you, O Prince of Peace; that is what I long to do. I give You praise, for You are my righteousness. I worship You, Almighty God; there is none like You.
WHAT IS WORSHIP?
Webster’s Dictionary (1828) says Worship is to honor with extravagant love and extreme submission. Worship is defined by the priority we place on “who” God is in our lives and “where” God is on our list of priorities. True worship is a matter of the heart expressed through a lifestyle of holiness.
WHO do we worship? We worship God, the Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent One.
WHY do we worship? We worship God because he is God. Our extravagant love and extreme submission to the Holy One flows out of reality that God loved us first.
THE PROMISE OF WORSHIP?
Because of God’s unimaginable generosity towards us, God in all of his glory chooses to respond to us through our worship. This is the promise: that when we worship God with extravagant love and extreme submission, God will come and commune with us. When we offer God our true worship we are inviting him to inspect our hearts for anything that is not like him. The promise of worship is that we can be transformed into God’s likeness because he will reveal the truth about the condition of our hearts as we worship.
Worship, therefore, is having an extravagant or exaggerated love for God because of WHO he is—the Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent One. When our expressions of worship give to the LORD the glory he deserves (Psalm 96:8) he will come and commune with us. Above all, God will respond to our worship by making our hearts more like his.
WE INVITE YOU to join us for worship at St. Paul’s. We offer both a Contemporary Service and a Traditional Service every Sunday, as well as Children’s Church. Both services are held in our sanctuary. You are welcome to dress in a way that is comfortable for you. Those who attend our services wear everything from jeans to a suit and tie.
We have a nursery available during both worship services, beginning at 8:15 a.m. each week for infants up to age 5.
Assistance is available for both services for the hearing-impaired.
