* Passion to worship

Worship describes those times we gather deliberately seeking to encounter God in Christ. God uses worship to transform lives, heal wounded souls, renew hope, shape decisions, provoke change, inspire compassion, and bind people to one another. The word passionate expresses an intense desire, an ardent spirit, strong feelings, and the sense of heightened importance. Congregations who practice Passionate Worship offer their utmost and highest; they expect worship to be the most important hour of the week. Through the personal practice of Passionate Worship, we learn to love God in return. Followers of Christ develop patterns of listening to God, allowing God to shape our hearts and minds through prayer, personal devotion, and community worship. We love God.

Love the Lord your God with all that you are, with all of your heart, and all of your mind and all of your soul, and love your neighbor as yourself. Luke 10:27

* Seeking God’s face

THE NATURE OF TRUE WORSHIP is seeking the face of God, to realize his presence, behold his glory, be made sensible of his majesty, holiness and loving kindness. Or, in greater strictness, this may he said to be preliminary to the worship of him. We come into his presence that we may present to him our adoration, praises, confessions, and prayers. We must not be content with coming into his house, seeing his servants, joining in ceremonies - leaving, as it were, our names and messages, engaging and depending on the intercession of those who are supposed to approach nearer to him. Our heavenly Father does not keep such state as to exclude or repel any one from coming near to him. He wishes to see his children, to smile upon them, to embrace them, to speak with them. Any methods of worship which keep men at a distance from him are contrary to his will.

Now during the reign of David there was a famine for three successive years, and David sought the face of the LORD. And the LORD said, "It is because of the blood shed by Saul and his family, because he killed the Gibeonites. 2 Samuel 21:1

* Living Our Faith

Living our FAITH in LOVE. Love is Agape, not the natural love as we know it based on how we feel, but it is the God kind of love which is based on a decision to commit to something or someone. Agape is based on an unconditional decision to love , believe in and respect someone in spite of them. God commands us to love everyone, even the unlovable and undeserving just as He loved us when we were His enemies by dying on the cross for us. The Bible says God is love, that is, God is the perfect definition of Agape.

[37] Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. [38] This is the first and great commandment. [39] And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. [40] On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Matt 22:37-40

* Readiness

Departing this life with minimal regrets is one of the greatest achievements of life; the matter of eternity is a matter of prime importance and urgency.

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day:” 2 Timothy 4:7-8
