Worship

The church worships the God known through the witness of the Christian Bible. The church worships the one God, who called Israel into covenant, fulfilled that promise in Jesus Christ, and embraced all people through the Spirit of truth. 

For Protestant Christians preaching from the Bible is the primary manifestation of Jesus Christ in the life of the church. In the Catholic and Orthodox traditions of the church the Eucharist is primary, yet in the twentieth century preaching from scripture has become more important than it was historically.

In the New Testament Jesus prays by himself and with his disciples, and the apostles pray with their followers. The Psalms of the Old Testament not only continue to be recited as prayers among Jews, but these poetic expressions of faith are also read regularly as prayers within the church. All Christians pray the Lord's Prayer (Our Father), and Protestant churches generally encourage Christians to pray in their own words.

The Greatest Commandment

In the New Testament gospels, however, Jesus says very little about worship. Moreover, Jesus teaches that the greatest commandment is not worshiping God rather than idols, but loving God.

Sermons

Sermons prepared by Robert Traer are available on this web site for anyone who wishes to read them or use them. These sermons interpret passages of scripture from the Christian Bible and apply the principles of Christian faith to the issues that challenge the contemporary church.

Carols

Twenty carols, some familiar, some not, available in a songbook or as a CD. 

Hymns

New words set to old hymn tunes.  Available as a songbook or as a CD.

Prayers

This web site also offers prayers for use within the life of the church.  Please feel free to use these in the worship of your church or in your private discipline of prayer.
