CBC Worship Team
Each Sunday Christians from the local area gather together to sing, pray, teach, and fellowship. Our service always begins with songs that exalt the name of Jesus Christ and inspire participants to worship God.
The passage of Scripture found in the book of John, chapter 4, verse 23-24 spells out what type of worship is acceptable to God, it says, “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and truth.”
“True worship must be “in spirit,” that is, engaging the whole heart. Unless there’s a real passion for God, there is no worship in spirit. At the same time, worship must be “in truth,” that is, properly informed. Unless we have knowledge of the God we worship, there is no worship in truth. Both are necessary for satisfying and God-honoring worship. Spirit without truth leads to a shallow, overly emotional experience that could be compared to a high. As soon as the emotion is over, when the fervor cools, so does the worship. Truth without spirit can result in a dry, passionless encounter that can easily lead to a form of joyless legalism. The best combination of both aspects of worship results in a joyous appreciation of God informed by Scripture. The more we know about God, the more we appreciate Him. The more we appreciate, the deeper our worship. The deeper our worship, the more God is glorified.” (Joseph Carroll)
Worshiping God is a life choice, not just a few songs sung on Sunday Morning. We encourage everyone to pursue God throughout the week. Christ taught us to pray to the Father in secret, while warning against hypocrisy of “making a show” of prayer to be looked upon by others while tending to spiritual business with God.
Singing has always been part of the church (all believers). Our hope is that everyone who has come into a right relationship with God, through Christ, will worship all week, and on Sundays will come together for corporate worship. Not to make a show and not to be seen of men but to lift their voices together and bring praise and honor to our most holy God.
It is the worship teams privilege to lead the singing and to do the very best that we can. We are all imperfect people desiring to worship a perfect God.
