Our worship each Lord’s day consists of five parts:
- Preaching / study of God’s word (Acts 20:7; 2 Timothy 4:2) – We emphasise the Bible because only the word of God is a lamp for our feet to travel the way of life (Psalm 119:105). Only the gospel is God’s power to save man (Romans 1:16).
- Prayer (Acts 2:42; Timothy 2:1,2,8) – Prayer is man’s way to communicate to God. Our prayers include thanksgiving, requests, praise and glory to God, and confession of sin.
- Lord’s Supper (1 Corinthians 11:23-27) – The Lord’s Supper, which is also called “breaking bread” or “communion,” consists of two elements: unleavened bread and fruit of the vine. In order to remember the death of Jesus, each Sunday members of the church eat the bread, which represents the body of Jesus, and drink the fruit of the vine, which represents His blood (Matthew 26:26-28).
- Contribution (1 Corinthians 16:1,2) – Giving to God on each first day of the week is the responsibility of each Christian. These contributions are used to support the work of the local church, and such free-will gifts are the sole source of income for the church. The church does not engage in business enterprises to support its activities.
- Singing (Ephesians 5:19) – As the New Testament teaches, our music consists of offering praises to God in a cappella singing, speaking to one another and admonishing one another “in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody” in our hearts to the Lord. No instruments of music are used.
