Our Desire for Worship at Christ Covenant Church
As an expression of the local church, we desire to be a people defined by who God has declared us to be in His Word. Speaking to the church, God addresses us in this way:
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. -1 Peter 2:9-10
In response to the mercy and grace of God that has been undeservedly given to us through the gospel, we seek to be a people marked by complete devotion to Him who has redeemed us. Our sin separates us from the perfect and holy God, but Jesus lived the perfect life we could not live and received the punishment that we deserved in order to bring us back into relationship with our Creator. Because of this, we now have the joyful privilege to come into His presence. We have been created and redeemed by God for the purpose of worshipping Him.
While our understanding of worship encompasses all of life, we believe God has uniquely given us the gift of being able to gather together to worship alongside each other as one united people. When we come together for weekly gatherings, we will always worship through hearing the Word of God preached, singing together, praying, generous giving, and taking part in the ordinances of baptism and communion. The Word of Christ is central to our worship. We seek to follow the model that the apostle Paul gives:
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” – Colossians 3:16
In light of this challenge, we make it our life’s aim to thankfully respond to God in unhindered, Spirit-led, and truth-filled worship. We long to be a unified body of Christ-followers that love to sing, declare, and encourage one another with the life-transforming good news of the gospel.
