Worship

"God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth." - John 4:24

What to Expect in Worship

God has promised to meet with his people as we gather together to hear his voice and call upon his name. The Lord speaks to us in the reading and preaching of the Word; he signifies and seals to us the benefits of Christ in the sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We respond with the singing of praises, the lifting up of prayers, and the giving of our tithes and offerings. God assures us of his heavenly blessing as we worship him in Spirit and in Truth (John 4:24). At Redeemer OPC, we use both the Trinity Hymnal and the RPCNA Psalter in our singing. The Lord’s Supper is administered twice monthly: on the 2nd Lord’s Day (evening worship) and the last Lord’s Day (morning worship).

How to Approach God in Worship

The Bible teaches that God is supremely holy, and that we are utterly sinful; therefore we cannot stand before him in our guilty condition. But God, being rich in mercy, has demonstrated his love for sinners by sending his Son that we might be reconciled to him through the blood of the cross. Thus we can now approach the Lord with joyful reverence and heartfelt thanksgiving because we have peace with the Father through his Son, and have been given the gift of his Spirit. If you have not yet trusted Jesus Christ for salvation, our prayer is that today you will believe in him as you hear his redemptive work proclaimed. The pastor or an elder would be glad to speak to you and answer any questions about the Bible and the Gospel message.
