This is our goal at First Baptist Church, to glorify God alone as we worship Him through praise, proclamation, prayer, scripture, and giving. We believe our model for worship is found in John 4:23-24: Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and they that worship must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
We believe there are three principles in these passages.
- Worship is "Theo-centric" - It starts with God; The Father seeks people to worship Him in the way He demands.
- Worship is subjective - in SPIRIT means that our spirit responds and communicates with the Spirit of God.
- Worship is objective - in TRUTH means worship must be based totally on scripture, the Word of God
