Worship should always bring glory to God.
The word glory (doxa) means “shining.”
Think of glory as meaning “to shine the spotlight on.”
When we worship we give glory to God; we shine the spotlight on Jesus Christ and lift His name up in praise and through the Word.
We shine the spiritual spotlight on Him instead of ourselves.
There are several styles of worship in churches.
They range from highly emotional and expressive to formal and rigid.
None are necessarily right or wrong, just preferred styles of worship.
At First Baptist Church, we try to find a balance.
Ephesians 5:19-20 says, “speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
You will enjoy contemporary and traditional music, an expository and practical message from the Bible, and a friendly atmosphere for worship. At times there will be laughter, applause, praise, and joy.
Every Christian needs to worship regularly. Worship connects you to God, encourages other Christians, and brings peace and purpose to life.
