We at Redeemer Church seek to order our worship according to the commands of God and to offer Biblical worship as we pray, sing, and preach the Word of God during our services each week.  The Regulative Principle, which we seek to follow, means that our conscience is bound by the Word of God to worship him as he commands us in his Word. Pastor Vance offers a fuller explanation of this principle in this helpful sermon.

Here is a sample bulletin which will give you an idea of what to expect during our worship service.

Call to Worship

Our Confession

Ephesians 1:3-14

We bless You, God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for having blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as You chose us in Him before the foundation of the world that we should be holy and without blame before You in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Yourself, according to the good pleasure of Your will, to the praise of the glory of Your grace, by which You made us accepted in Your Beloved.

In Him we have redemption through His blood.  Forgive us our sins, therefore, according to the riches of Your grace, which You made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence.  You have made known to us the mystery of Your will, according to Your good pleasure which You purposed in Yourself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times You might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him.

In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to Your purpose, as You work all things according to the counsel of Your will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of Your glory.

In Him we also trusted, after we heard the word of truth, the gospel of our salvation; in whom also, having believed, we were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession to the praise of Your glory.  Amen!

Now the Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. 6 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, 7 keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children to the third and the fourth generation.” 8 So Moses made haste and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshiped

Announcements

 

  • You’re invited to join us here for our regular first-Sunday lunch immediately following morning worship.
  • The Lord’s Supper was given by Jesus Christ to his body, the church, to be a special means of grace and blessing. We ask therefore that only those who have made a public profession of faith in Christ and are members in good standing of a Bible-believing church eat and drink with us.  And we warmly invite you to come to the Lord’s Table.
  • Please leave the last few rows of seats for those with young children.
