Worship with MCPC

A church’s theology will be expressed in its practice of worship. If we believe that God exists (not just any God, but the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ) and that he rewards those who seek him (Hebrews 11:6), then that will affect what we do on Sunday morning. Worship is first and foremost a meeting between the triune God and his people. In worship God speaks to us, feeds us, blesses us. In worship we respond to God and speak to him in our prayers, sing to him in our songs. We pledge ourselves to him as his people.

 

And if worship is a meeting between the triune God and his people, then our worship participates together with the church of all ages at the heavenly throne of God (Heb 12, Rev 4-5). We do not merely gather on earth with a group of people in one city, but rather we come together with the heavenly hosts and the saints of all ages in the heavenly city. Therefore our worship should reflect that participation in and with the saints of all ages. Our worship should remind us that we are connected to something bigger and better than anything our culture has to offer.

This website will lay out some of our theology and practice of worship — but ultimately worship is something that must be practiced. Come, let us worship the LORD together!
