Our Worship

Expressions of Thanksgiving
Spirit-filled worship is a special blessing that we enjoy. We believe all Christians should give God praise, bringing glory and honour to Him. In our services people often pray and thank the Lord audibly during times of corporate prayer and thanksgiving. While some pray silently and express little outward emotions, others will respond aloud with raised hands, often communication their love and affection through tears.
Raising hands are common in our worship, showing approval and pleasure for the things God is doing in our lives. To the believer it is an outward sign of praise and surrender to His will. These visible gestures are not for the benefit of others, but rather personal expressions of worship. Regardless of style, each sincere expression is welcome (Psalm 47:1; 134:2).
