If you have never had the opportunity to be in a Spirit-filled service before, you will discover that Biblical expressions of worship are still practiced today. Join in with us as we praise God together in spirit and in truth.
Biblical Expressions of Worship
- We pray together aloud because in the Bible we read, â€œThey lifted up their voice to God with one accordâ€ (Acts 4:24).
- We lift our hands in praise because in the Bible we read, â€œLift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lordâ€ (Psalm 134:2).
- We sing with all our hearts because in the Bible we read, â€œMake a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praiseâ€ (Psalm 98:4).
- We play musical instruments because in the Bible we read, â€œAnd all the house of Israel played before the LORD on all manner of instrumentsâ€ (2 Samuel 6:5).
- We clap and shout unto God because in the Bible we read, â€œO clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumphâ€ (Psalm 47:1).
- We dance before the LORD because in the Bible we read, â€œPraise Him with the timbrel and dance: praise Him with stringed instruments and organsâ€ (Psalm 150:4).
- We testify publicly because in the Bible we read, â€œI will declare thy name unto my brethren; in the midst of the congregation will I praise theeâ€ (Psalm 22:22).
- We anoint with oil for divine healing because in the Bible we read, â€œIs any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lordâ€ (James 5:14).
- We allow the operation of the spiritual gifts because in the Bible we read, â€œWhen ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretationâ€ (1 Corinthians 14:26).
