We are a church that believes that our great God is worthy to receive our best, especially in our worship! While we believe that all forms of worship must be Scripturally sound, we also believe that the forms of worship found in a local church are a matter of style and preference. If you worship with us you will see many different forms of worship because our church family is made up of many different types of people. With that in mind, there are some common questions that are often asked about our worship. These Scripture references will help answer some of your questions. If, after studying these Scriptures, you are still uncertain about an aspect of our worship, please feel free to ask our leadership. We are more than happy to assist and encourage you in your personal walk and growth with the Lord!
