What does a biblical church service look like?
Hymn writer Matt Merker shows that corporate worship is the gathering of God's people by His grace, for His glory, for their good, and before a watching world.
Corporate Worship helpfully clarifies the nonnegotiable elements of congregational worship, including reading and praying God’s Word, singing, preaching, baptism, and Communion. It also differentiates between the stylistic choices that can be applied to these elements according to a church’s preferences.
This book on church worship is foundational for every believer. It will also greatly help anyone assess if a church follows a biblical framework.
