Call to Worship

Psalm 25:1-5 (ESV)

 

To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul.  O my God, in you I trust; let me not be put to shame; let not my enemies exult over me.  Indeed, none who wait for you shall be put to shame; they shall be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.  Make me to know your ways, O LORD; teach me your paths.  Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.

God Our Maker

 

God our Maker, God Creator,

our Sustainer, Sovereign One;

God our Father, our Deliverer,

God our victory hath won!

 

Justified our guilt is gone; sanctify us, Holy One.

We speak Your truths, O Three in One. 

Our mission will remain:

To glorify and hail Thy Name!

Christ our Brother, Mediator,

Christ beloved Cornerstone;

With Thy blood hath bought redemption

through Thy sacrifice alone.

Justified our guilt is gone; sanctify us, Holy One.

We speak Your truths, O Three in One. 

Our mission will remain:

To glorify and hail Thy Name!

Holy Spirit, we beseech Thee,

move amongst Thine own we pray!

Change our hearts and minds completely,

show Thy power in us today!

Justified our guilt is gone; sanctify us, Holy One.

We speak Your truths, O Three in One. 

Our mission will remain:

To glorify and hail Thy Name!

Worshiping God by Confessing Our Faith

  The Apostles' Creed

 

I believe in God the Father Almighty,

Maker of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

and born of the virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, died, and was buried;

he descended into hell.

The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven

and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.

From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the holy catholic church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting.

Amen.

We Are Not Ashamed

The news of Jesus Christ, the crucified 
Risen, reigning at the Father’s side 
 Is foolishness to those who cannot see 
Blinded by the lies they have believed

 

So let the Church arise, let the anthem ring 
Till all the world has heard of Christ the Risen King 
The song of the redeemed boldly we shall sing 
The hope of all the world is Christ the Risen King! 

 

 We, we are not ashamed 
For the gospel is the power of God to save 
Yes, we, we are not ashamed 
For we have no other Savior to proclaim 
Christ alone, the Life, the Truth, the Way

 

The enemies of God are in a rage 
Opposing Him, their efforts are in vain 
Through every age the gospel will endure 
The Spirit’s with the Church forevermore 

 

So let the Church arise, let the anthem ring 
Till all the world has heard of Christ the Risen King 
The song of the redeemed boldly we shall sing 
The hope of all the world is Christ the Risen King! 

 

 We, we are not ashamed 
For the gospel is the power of God to save 
Yes, we, we are not ashamed 
For we have no other Savior to proclaim 

 

We, we are not ashamed 
For we have a sure foundation in His grace 
Yes, we, we are not ashamed 
For we have a great salvation in His name 
Christ alone, the Life, the Truth, the Way

Christ alone, the Life, the Truth, the Way

Speak, O Lord

  Speak, O Lord, as we come to You

to receive the food of Your holy word

Take Your truth, plant it deep in us,

shape and fashion us in Your likeness

That the light of Christ might be seen today

in our acts of love and our deeds of faith

Speak, O Lord, and fulfill in us

all Your purposes for Your glory

 

Teach us, Lord, full obedience,

holy reverence, true humility

Test our thoughts and our attitudes

in the radiance of Your purity

Cause our faith to rise, cause our eyes to see

Your majestic love and authority

Words of power that can never fail,

let their truth prevail over unbelief

 

Speak, O Lord, and renew our minds,

help us grasp the heights of Your plans for us

Truths unchanged from the dawn of time

that will echo down through eternity

And by grace we'll stand on Your promises,

and by faith we'll walk as You walk with us

Speak, O Lord, till Your church is built,

and the earth is filled with Your glory

And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
