We believe our mission is connecting and equipping people to follow Jesus. We accomplish that mission as we celebrate, connect, and contribute together in four key contexts: WORSHIP, BIBLICAL COMMUNITY, OUTREACH, and NEXT GENERATION. The four primary areas, driven by the power of PRAYER become the core principles that guide the ministries of PBC and form a pathway to follow in Jesus's footsteps. In this message, Pastor Andy preaches on the first core principle, Worship: Together in God's Presence Glorifying Father, Son, and Spirit. We'll examine three important questions: 1) What is worship? 2) Why is it important to worship together? 3) How do we worship together as PBC?
Why do we worship? Genuine worship is our response to who God is. Last week we were reminded that God is Awesome. In response to that truth, we worship. We recognize our utter dependence on Him. Psalm 96 is a call to worship. We are called & created by God to worship. The Westminster Shorter Catechism: the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.
The culmination of our Work As Worship series was a massive service project with well over 100 PBC volunteers serving in the name of Christ. We cleaned up parks, made meals for families in need, worked on widows' houses, and did it all as an act of worship. This brief message is from the short worship "service" before our worship "serving."
