Our Worship at Christ Reformed Baptist Church
Our worship is relatively simple because we subscribe to the Regulative Principle of Worship. This principle is simply the understanding that Scripture should regulate worship. Basically, if Scripture does not prescribe something for public worship, then we believe it should not be included in our worship. Scripture prescribes these elements for worship: the reading and preaching of God’s word, prayer, singing, baptism, and the Lord’s Supper. The Regulative Principle helps us remember that worship should not be all about our personal desires or entertainment but should be God-centered. We believe worship should be both reverent and joyful, focused only on glorifying and pleasing God.And yet, because of sin, we know that, no matter how well-intentioned we may be, our worship is far from perfect! Scripture teaches that, just as we need Jesus Christ for salvation from sin, we also need him to make our worship pleasing to God. Only Christ can perfect our worship.
