Many people would say that's the sound of a church service on any typical Sunday morning. Deadly boring... soapy platitudes... hypocritical denunciations... prudish warnings against anything real and deeply pleasurable... ranks of drowsy worshipers putting in their mandatory time in "God's house" before being released once more to life outside the dim stained glass, behind which they comfortably deposit most of their religion until the next weekend.

If that's Christianity, who wants it?

On the contrary, Christianity is a face-to-face reunion with God. Visit our "Eyewitnesses" section to read how Jesus Christ is wonderfully alive and busy in the world today, bringing people to life. As people believe in him and open their hearts and lives to him, they find that he is undeniably real, powerful, and good. Our earnest hope is that you also will become an eyewitness of his majesty.

Prepare for February 1 Worship

Dear Singing Saints:

On Sunday, as we together worship Christ with regenerate hearts, we will sing with one voice the new song that only the redeemed can learn—

And I heard a voice from heaven like the roar of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder. The voice I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps, and they were singing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. Rev 14:2-3 [the 144,000 here represent the totality of the redeemed]

The hymns you will sing with one voice as part of that new song are:

558 … That Man Is Blest
248 … Ah, Holy Jesus, How Hast Thou Offended
421 … Soul, Adorn Yourself with Gladness

Your servant for the sake of Christ,
Pastor Paul
