Public worship is more than a gathering of God’s children with each other: it is the triune God meeting with His own people. God is present in public worship, as Jesus said, “where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:20).
While the Bible does not provide a fixed form of public worship, God tells us in Scripture that the following elements are to be present in the public worship of God: reading of Holy Scripture; singing of psalms, hymns and spiritual songs; the offering of prayer; the preaching of the Word; the presentation of offerings; confessing the faith; observing the Sacraments; and on special occasions, taking oaths. (BCO 47-1 and BCO 47-9).
Please join us in our public worship of the triune God.
