The first purpose of Christ Community Church is EXALTING!
GOD CREATED US FOR HIS GLORY.
...everyone who is called by my name,
whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.
THEREFORE, WE SHOULD LIVE FOR HIS GLORY.
...So, whether you eat or drink,
or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31
The worship (EXALTING) of God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit is both public and personal.
Because God has saved us through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ in his life,
death, and resurrection,our sins are forgiven and we have been reconciled to God.
Because of God,by His grace,we are brought into a relationship to enjoy His glorious presence forever.
Paul told the Roman believers that worship was to be our entire life, not simply supplemental.
Gospel-centered, God-exalting, Spirit-anointed worship begins with our heart and mind,
lived out in our daily lives. The means by which we become more like Christ
(Romans 8:29-30) is by reading,meditating, memorizing, delighting and obeying
the Word of God. We worship God publicly as a gathered body of Christ
and personally as we are scattered in every sphere of society.
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your
bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing
you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Romans 12: 1-2
