Our worship is relatively simple because of 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 it shouldn't be included. Scripture prescribes for worship these elements: reading and preaching of God's word, prayer, singing, baptism, and the Lord's Supper. This principle leads us to resist our personal desires for worship. Since worship should be God-centered, it should not be about our preferences, our tastes in music, our entertainment, or any other thing which we may pursue at other times. We believe worship should reverently and joyfully honor and glorify God-- and that the focus should be on God alone. 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.
