The sanctuary is a place set apart for prayer, praise and the preaching and teaching of God’s Word. When you gather with us in the sanctuary you will find enthusiastic praise, praying out loud, fervent preaching and cheerful giving.
If you have never had the opportunity to be in a Spirit-filled service before, you will discover that Biblical expressions of worship are still practiced today. Join in with us as we praise God together in spirit and in truth.
Biblical Expressions of Worship
We anoint with oil for divine healing because in the Bible we read, “Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord” (James 5:14).
We allow the operation of the spiritual gifts because in the Bible we read, “When ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation” (1 Corinthians 14:26).

While praising with us you may feel the presence of God. It is proper to respond, opening your heart to God in repentance and praise. At the conclusion of the preaching, people often come up around the front to pray and praise God in response to the Word and Spirit. This is a great time to repent of sins and give your heart to Jesus. It is during this time that many persons receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:4).
