Call to Worship                           

We have come as the body of Christ to do Holy business for our King. We have come in troubled times, but we have high spirits.  We know the Eternal One is still on the throne.  Saints, lift up holy hands, lift high your voices and praise  the Sovereign One.  Mighty is our God, holy are His judgments and He is altogether lovely.  Praise Him!  Praise Him!  Praise Him!

Responsive Reading for the Month of May, 2022:

Catechism – a set form of questions and answers to teach the tenets of the Christian Faith.

Question: What do justification and sanctification mean?

Answer: Justification means our declared righteousness before God, made possible by Christ’s death and resurrection for us. Sanctification means our gradual, growing righteousness, made possible by the Spirit’s work in us, in obedience to the Word.


Question: Should those who have faith in Christ seek their salvation through their own works, or anywhere else?

Answer: No, they should not, as everything necessary to salvation is found in Christ. To seek salvation through good works is a denial that Christ is the only Redeemer and Savior.


Question: Since we are redeemed by grace alone, through Christ alone, must we still do good works and obey God’s Word?

Answer: Yes, so that our lives may show love and gratitude to God and so that by our godly behavior others may be won to Christ.


Question: Since we are redeemed by grace alone, through faith alone, where does this faith come from?

Answer: All the gifts we receive from Christ we receive through the Holy Spirit, including faith itself.
