Let everything that has breath and every breath of life praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) Psalm 150:6

 

Here at Calvary Church we believe that Worship is a vital part of our church experience.

Here are some definitions of Worship I have collected over the years:

  • Worship is conversation between God and man, a dialogue that should go on constantly in the life of a Christian.
  • Worship is giving to God and involves a lifetime of giving to him the sacrifice he asks for: our total selves.
  • Worship is one’s heart expression of love, adoration, and praise to God with an attitude and acknowledgment of His supremacy and Lordship.
  • True worship and praise are “awesome wonder and overpowering love” in the presence of God.
  • Worship is the ability to magnify God with our whole being – body, soul, and spirit.
  • The heart of true worship is the unashamed pouring out of our inner self upon the Lord Jesus Christ in affectionate devotion.
  • Worship is extravagant love and extreme obedience.
  • Real worship defies definition; it can only be experienced.

Not only is worship a vital part of our church life it's also a vital part of our personal life. Worship is the most important thing we do as children of God. We must discipline ourselves to be worshippers just as we discipline ourselves to study God's Word, pray and fellowship with other believers. Worship is a voluntary discipline that is done in obedience to God's Word. Worship is not optional but it is voluntary. If we are going to be obedient children of God, we will gladly offer up our worship to Him.

I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalms 34:1

Come and let us worship the Lord together!
