Our Worship

God, as the Creator, calls us, the creatures, to worship him. This worship is not to be guided by what we might think is convenient, or “relevant,” or attractive to newcomers, or what makes us feel good. Instead, we are to worship God in the ways in which he commands. At Faith OPC, we try to have worship that is faithful to scripture, worship in the way God commands.

If you want to read more about how we should worship, we can recommend a few books:
