What Is Worship?
The LORD is worthy of worship, as the one true and living God. We were made to worship Him. Worship can be defined as our response to who God is and what He has done, both as our Creator and Redeemer. According to Romans 12:1-2; we are to offer our very bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God which is our spiritual act of worship. All of life is an opportunity for us to worship our great God. The very breath in our lungs and the heart beating in our chest means we are alive and able to respond to our Creator.
Our worship as a church is a time where we gather to remember God’s faithfulness and to declare that He has bought us with the precious blood of Jesus Christ. We have been redeemed from the bondage of our sins and are free to fellowship with worship the Lord. We do so through singing, praying, giving, preaching, and celebrating the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We gather corporately for worship services because we are commanded to do so and ultimately because God is worthy of our worship.
Music and Style
Few things define a people like their music. This is no less true of the church than of the culture at large. Our music at GMBC makes a statement about who we are and what we believe as a church. Our music ministry is committed to God-focused worship. The songs we sing as a congregation are saturated with the good news of Jesus Christ, and we aim to exalt the name of our great God and to teach clear doctrine through our music.
The services at GMBC utilize a blended style of music from the natural expressions of our people.
