The Lord Jesus Christ declares, "Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks" (John 4:23). True worship is integral to Christian spirituality and vital to genuine Christian community.
James B. Torrance states that Christian worship is "the gift of participating in the incarnate Son’s communion with the Father through the Holy Spirit." To worship is to ascribe and express supreme worth or value to someone or something; for believers, it is to extol and magnify the triune creator God as Lord and King, through singing, praying, and a myriad of creative means in lifestyle worship.
Moreover, biblical worship is "liturgy," literally, "the work of the people." It is not a performance but a participation and an act of sacrifice. For those who are gifted and sensing the call to serve in public worship at Mountainview, whether through music, singing, reading, prayer and other expressions, you are encouraged to reach out to Sean, our Music Director.
