The Four-Fold Worship Structure

From its earliest days, the church observed a specific pattern of worship, which many churches still follow today.  Although much of its form was borrowed from Jewish liturgical traditions, it took on new meaning because of Christ’s atoning work.

Christians gather to celebrate the fulfillment of God’s plan of redemption.  This worship is not a program, but a movement of God’s people, who enter to hear the Word, respond in thanksgiving, and go fort to love and serve the Lord.
