What is Worship?
Worship is the act of ascribing ultimate value to something in a way that engages your entire being – mind, will, and emotions. What in your life engages your entire being? The truth is, we all worship something. We all give our ‘entire being’ to one thing or another, likely multiple things – our families, our work, our hobbies, our favorite sports teams, on and on…
Colossians 1:15-18 says “He (Jesus) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities – all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also the head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything.”
‘First place in everything’. There it is – ‘worship’ spelled out for Christians. Jesus Christ created everything for Himself, He is the head of all things, He holds all things together, and He is first above everything. Nothing else in life is worthy of engaging our entire being. Christ alone is worthy of our worship.
The Worship Ministry
The Worship Ministry of Living Water strives to lead people into an authentic experience of this powerful truth; entering into the life-changing presence of God through genuine, Christ-exalting, Holy Spirit fueled praise & worship. More than anything, we desire and pray that Jesus Christ would become famous in our church – not a pastor, a singer, a teacher, a personality or a ministry… but Christ alone. We would love for you to come worship with us!
We would be delighted to have you join the Living Water Baptist Church Celebration Choir as we engage in authentic worship with our congregation during Sunday morning services. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings at 6:00 PM. We bring our joys and sorrows to the Lord as we sing, and declare His greatness and goodness. If you would like to know more about being involved with the worship choir contact Josh Walls at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Living Water band is a dynamic ensemble of musicians using their skills for the glory of God. Practices are Wednesdays at 6:00 PM, and we minister each week during Sunday morning service at 8:40 or 10:15 AM. Our ongoing goal is to lead our congregation in worship as we continually seek to "play skillfully" as instructed in Psalm 33:3.
We are consistently looking for strong players who are committed to their Christian walk. To schedule an audition, contact Josh Walls at email@example.com
The Tech Team
As an integral part of the Worship Ministry, the Tech Team utilizes an ever-growing variety of technologies to support the vision of our Worship Pastor—to experience the presence of God in our worship. Simply put, we deliver the worship experience to the congregation in a way that facilitates and encourages worship.
Our ministries include audio & video recording, lighting, sound mixing and computer-based visuals. Members who desire to serve in this behind-the-scenes but critical ministry should possess a heart for worship, a passion for excellence and a servant’s heart. Combined with some technical skills and a teachable spirit, you may have what it takes to run with us as we pursue our vision.
If you are interested in being a part of the Tech Team, please email Josh Walls at firstname.lastname@example.org
