Worship and Ministries
The Presbyterian Book of Church Order describes worship and its role in a believer's life as one of reciprocity.
Christians respond to God both in communal worship and service and in personal acts of worship and discipleship. The lives of Christian disciples flow from worship, which confirms our identity as believers and calls people to a life of discipleship and personal response to God.
Through worship, people become aware of and responsive to the presence of God in their life. The Word of God proclaimed and received in worship calls each believer to faithful discipleship and service in the world. From such service, the disciple turns to give thanks, to confess, to intercede, and to hear Christ's call anew. The rhythm of the life of the believer moves from worship to ministry, from ministry to worship.
