We hold communion services the last Sunday of every month. This special act of commemoration of the Saviour’s death is incorporated into our morning service on that Sunday. In agreement with the teaching of the word of God we believe that proper participation in the communion service is limited to those who have been born again and are walking in obedience to the will of God. The teaching of the Spirit of God is clear But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. (1 Corinthians 11:28 AV)
Format of our services
The way that we run our services is regulated by the Word of God. It is our conviction that only God can define the worship activity that is acceptable to Him. We must turn to His word to discover the kinds of activity that are permissible in a worship setting. In Scripture, worship consists of three basic activities: Prayer, Praise and Preaching. Each of these activities is to be regulated by the clear teaching of Scripture. For this reason we unhesitatingly reject:
The modern methodology of incorporating “contemporary” features into the worship of God. There is no place for the world’s music, ideology, drama etc. in the worship of God. In our worship the preaching of the whole counsel of God is central.
The unscriptural practices of the Charismatic and Pentecostal movements. The practice of charismatic tongues is entirely contrary to the teaching of Scripture as are many of the other pseudo-Pentecostal gifts they claim.
The modern ecumenical trends in which those who claim to know Christ and believe His word have been content to sit down and worship with those who deny Christ and His word. Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:14-18 AV)
An emphasis on prayer.
As a Church we believe in prayer. Our mid-week meeting is a meeting to wait upon God in prayer. We take prayer seriously and follow the example of the early New Testament Church which was a Church found regularly at the throne of Grace. Our Sunday services are also preceded by prayer as we realize that it is in the environment of prayer that we approach God in worship and have His word applied to our hearts by the Holy Spirit.
