Mission statements are everywhere. Schools have them, hospitals have them, restaurants have them, and even the license bureau has one. It might not be wide of the mark to suggest that the chief mission of the Christian is to worship God. We see this stressed throughout the Bible:
1. In the garden we saw the test of worship.
2. Moses received 10 famous words from God which functioned as commandments of worship.
3. The Israelites were to set up the tabernacle in the middle of their encampment, no doubt showing the centrality of worship.
4. The temple was filled with smells and smoke indicating the sacrifices of worship.
5. The psalms and other works functioned as books of worship.
6. The post-exilic prophets had to try to re-institute proper worship.
7. When Christ came He showed us how important worship was by attending it regularly.
8. The early church found reason to change the day of worship.
9. The epistles functioned partly as a liturgy of worship.
10. And, Revelation ends with the rejoinder, “Worship God!”
Here at College Place we want you to feel comfortable to come into the church to Worship Him. I hope that you will visit with us and let us worship our God together!
