WHY WE WORSHIP THE WAY WE DO
We have provided this Web Page to help you understand our Pentecostal Heritage. Many people in the world today do not understand Pentecostal Worship. We trust that the information on this page will answer any questions about our beliefs, denomination, and local church. We encourage you to read the following topics
on Why We Worship God, A Brief History of the Church of God Denomination, Our Declaration of Faith, and Doctrinal Commitments, as well as, listen to the online audio messages of the preached word and anointed singing on our Web site.

WHY WE WORSHIP GOD
God, our heavenly Father desires to be worshipped in Spirit and in Truth!
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
-  John 4:23-24 (KJV)

In Luke 19:29-40, we read the story of Jesus riding into the city on a colt and the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples. And he answered and said unto them,
I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.  -  Psalms 150:1-6 (KJV)

Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in
thy name. 

-  Psalms 63:4 (KJV)

O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
-  Psalms 47:1 (KJV)

We make no apologies for our open worship to the Lord Jesus Christ. The New Testament teaches that we should worship the Lord our God. He is the only one we should serve, because there is no salvation in any other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
-  Matthew 4:10 and Acts 4:12

If the world can get excited enough over a football game to shout & Praise
their team, then why can’t the church get excited over Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World? He deserves our praise!

                                         DECLARATION OF FAITH
