Our worship in music will be a fulfilling of the instructions to be “speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,” Ephesians 5:19. You will not find an effort toward entertainment with beautiful organ or piano music. Our purpose in singing is to teach and admonish one another, expressing the gratitude of our hearts to God (Colossians 3:16).
In keeping with the example of the disciples of Christ in the New Testament, we come together on the first day of the week to break bread (Acts 20:7). So, if you visit on Sunday, the Lord's Day, you will observe the church eating bread and drinking the fruit of the vine in memory of the death of Christ (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
As a visitor, you will not be pressured to give money. In fact we do not take special collections at every service, even of church members. A collection is taken only on Sunday, the Lord's Day, in keeping with the instructions of 1 Corinthians 16:1-3. The church is supported by the freewill offerings of its members. Additionally, we do not engage in efforts like fund-raisers and rummage sales. Since our purpose and work is spiritual, (Ephesians 4:11-15) we make no attempt to compete with amusements.
Near the conclusion of our assemblies we extend the invitation of Christ who said “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light,” Matt 11:28-30. We call on all to believe in Christ (Galatians 3:26), repent of sin (Acts 17:30-31), make confession faith in Christ (Matthew 10:32), and be baptized in the name of Christ for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38). If anyone does respond to obey the gospel of Christ, they will immediately have their confession taken and, in the simple likeness to the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, be buried in water and raised to walk in newness of life (Romans 6:3-4).
Recognizing that Christ has instructed His people to “be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life,” Revelation 2:10, we also call on any brethren who have need of confession of sin, or the prayers of others to respond as well. (cf. Acts 8:18-24, James 5:16)
