• We gather to worship the living, holy God. He is present in the service. It is God to whom the worship proceedings are directed, not to those in the congregation. God is the audience. It is before God the congregation stands, sings, and listens. As Adam in the garden stood before God exposed in his sin, so we stand before God in worship. We acknowledge His grace and mercy.
– John 4:2
• We provide biblically sound teaching to produce maturity in the confidence of an obedient life – faith; in the patience of a Godly life – hope; in the conformity to a Christ-like life – love. Through teaching, preaching, fellowship, worship and service, believers are brought to maturity which results in a unity of purpose and function in the fulfilling of their duty to the glory of God.
– Ephesians 4:12
