We believe that worship is a whole-life, everyday activity and recognise that everything we do as a team needs to flow from a place of personal intimacy with God. As a result, how we worship on a Sunday should be a reflection of our on-going daily act of worship. We also believe that if we are a team who are committed to this it will, in turn, inspire the whole church to be those who long to worship with their whole lives too (Romans 12:2).
Trinitarian, Gospel-Centred & Spirit-Led Worship
We believe that our worship needs to be “in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24) and are keen that the songs we sing encourage such worship.
We long to enable LifeChurch to connect with God and part of this is acknowledging the fullness of who God is in His Trinitarian nature at the heart of our worship (that there is one God and that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are all worthy of worship) as well as realising that even coming into the presence of God is only possible because of what Jesus has done through His death and resurrection (Ephesians 2:18).
We also long to grow in being led by the Spirit in our worship times and in giving space for God to move amongst us. “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom” (2 Cor. 3:17).
We long to be those who are expectant for God to move and speak as we worship and for that to catch on to the church through what we do. God longs to bring His Kingdom into our lives and part of this comes through us surrendering to Him in worship and prioritising & valuing prayer (James 4:8).
The Power Of Worship
We believe there is great power in worship and that when we lift our eyes from our own circumstances, declare the truth of who God is and glorify Him we can expect to see transformation, healing, restoration & strongholds being broken (2 Chronicles 20, 1 Sam 16:23).
