Worship at RCCGod is our highest value.
Worship as a Lifestyle
Colossians 3:17 (ESV) “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
We believe the way we go about our daily lives speaks to and about the Lord Jesus Christ. The things we choose to spend our time doing explains the desires of our hearts. Our goal as Christians is to live our lives with God in mind. We agree as a community to actively engage this process because Jesus is worth living for each day. This is not a flawless undertaking, but this practice is true worship and locates God at the proper position in our lives.
Micah 6:8 (ESV) “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”
There are two distinctions inside the truth of worship being a daily lifestyle. One is Personal Worship. Each person will meet God face to face at the end of their lives. When that time comes, there will be two questions Jesus asks: “Do I know you?” and “What did you do to live for me?” The first is a question of salvation, the second is a question of obedience. One is a gift of grace for those who believe, the other is the outpouring of God in your life. Personal worship is all that you do and say personally to love and obey Jesus in your life.
Gathering to Worship
Hebrews 10:24–25 (ESV) “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
Another distinction of a lifestyle of worship is gathering with other believers to honor and elevate Jesus together. With RCC, this takes place on Sunday mornings. This time of love and expression to God helps us to be encouraged, instructed, relationally connected and challenged in the faith. The sacred scripture is clear that gathering with other believers is something God wants for Himself and for us. Therefore, we include worship gatherings as a part of a faithful lifestyle.
