Jesus taught: “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:24). Our worship is not based upon Jewish worship in the Law of Moses, but how first century Christians worshiped God in the New Testament.
- Lord’s Supper – Members of the Lord’s church partake of unleavened bread and the fruit of the vine every first day of the week (Acts 20:7; Matthew 26:26-28; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29), to remember our Lord’s suffering and death.
- Collection – This local church takes up a collection from its members every first day of the week as commanded in the New Testament (1 Corinthians 16:1-2; 2 Corinthians 9:7), to support the work of the Lord.
- Singing – We observe the command of “speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:19; cf. Colossians 3:16), without the addition of mechanical instruments or choirs (1 Corinthians 4:6).
- Prayer – We also continue steadfastly in prayers as the early church did (Acts 2:42; 12:5).
- Preaching – At our services the Word of God will be preached or taught (Acts 20:7; 2 Timothy 4:2), as we strive to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord (2 Peter 3:18).
