Corporate Worship

There's something about gathering together to worship God as one.

There's something about praying in one voice- hundreds of voices, hundreds of ways of speaking, all praying together one prayer in unity. The prayers rise up powerfully to the roof and beyond to the heart of God.

There's something to singing beautifully together in worship of our Creator. Hundreds of voices, blending together in harmony.

There's something to everyone reading the same scripture out loud together. The power of so many voices adds to the power of the Word of God.

There's something about remembering our baptism together. Of remembering how we were washed clean from our sins.

There's something to quietly accepting together the one bread and one cup of redemption. Just as there's one loaf, there's one body of Christ. Hundreds of hands accepting the gift of Christ entering them and giving grace through the act of communion.

There's something about corporately, together, joining to acknowledge God. There's something about fellowshipping with other Christians. There's something about being reminded that there are hundreds of parts to the body of Christ.

"Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke until love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as you see the day approaching. Hebrews 10:22-25

One body. One God. Many people. Joined together in one faith. All following the One True God.
Corporate Worship.
