What to Expect
If you have not attended a Charismatic-style worship service before, you may be in for a surprise.
We believe that God's spiritual gifts are for all believers in all ages of time. Elements of worship that are too often relegated to the New Testament era are alive and well in our services.
In the course of a service, you may see our members:
- Praying or speaking in unknown languages
- Offering a word of prophecy to the congregation
- Dancing in the Spirit
- Falling to the ground as if "slain" in the Spirit
It is our conviction that God grants gifts such as these to the believer in order that they may more fully know and worship him. They are not mandatory, and there are those who are more comfortable with quieter, more introspective forms of worship. All of this is welcomed and encouraged as we seek to glorify the God who created and redeemed us.
As with our worship, we believe that the Word of God is timeless. The words of the Scriptures apply as much today as they did when they were written. As such, our teaching does not shift as society demands, but adheres to the eternal truths which God has laid out for us through the inspired writers.
