We believe that it is God's prerogative to determine how He shall be worshipped, and how He shall be represented in the world. We believe that Christians and churches need to turn to the Bible to discover what to include in worship services, and how to worship God "in spirit and truth" (John 4:23). We endeavor to maintain a God-centered focus in our services and to protect our worship from the intrusion of carnal entertainments and distractions. It is our conviction that reading, preaching and hearing the Word of God, singing Psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, and administering baptism and communion are the scriptural elements of corporate worship. We seek to perform these with faith, joy and sobriety.
