Worship Philosophy


The Word of God

God Himself invites His people to assemble in His very presence to worship and enjoy Him. We come as children to our Heavenly Father, those who have been purchased and adopted through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, to adore and serve Him, and to be loved by Him. God wants us to love Him with all of our heart, mind, soul, and strength, so we seek to approach each corporate gathering with meaningful participation by all. To engage in meaningful participation means worship is not simply a Sunday morning gathering, but an all-of-life commitment.

To that end, PCPC’s first identity statement asserts that, by God’s grace, “We long to worship God together.” As a church, we want worship to be at the center of everything we do. We seek to foster worship in our church body as a whole, but also in our families and as individuals. The Westminster Shorter Catechism perhaps best summarizes our view of worship when it states, “Man’s chief end is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.”
