Our Form of Worship
Worship service is defined as “Divine Worship,” based on the Lutheran tradition established by Martin Luther. This worship reflects giving back to God what He has first given us through His Holy Word. The Liturgy, our order of service, is based upon God’s Word, not man’s emotion. Therefore, its components can readily be identified in Holy Scripture. Each worship service is preceded by Pre-Service Praise, and will include Confession and Absolution, Holy Scripture, Message of the Word, and Prayer.
The Lord's Supper (Holy Communion) is celebrated on the first and third Sundays of each month. According to God's Word, Holy Communion is more than just a ritual, custom, or memorial feast. Therefore, we believe the Holy Scriptures: "this is my body"..."this is my blood, given and shed for you for the forgiveness of sins." This is proof that our sins are forgiven through the eating and drinking. Holy Communion strengthens our faith in Jesus Christ and gives us renewed power to live for Christ and our fellow man.
We invite those Christians who believe in the real presence, to share Christ with us. If this is your first time sharing communion with us, please see the pastor, or ushers before the service. Proof passages: Luke 22:19; Matt. 26:28; 1 Corinthians 15:15-17; 1 Corinthians 11:28, 29; 1 Corinthians 13:5.
