Worship

 

Worship is . . .

attributing the honor and giving the devotion to God that he alone deserves. True worship has nothing to do with a particular style of worship or liturgy. It is, instead, a matter of the heart.
The questions related to worship in the Church Health Survey™ seek to ask one question of the church:

Are members inspired to worship in your church’s worship service?

To determine a church’s health in the area of worship, the survey asks questions related to the preaching, to the music, and to the auxiliary services which support what is happening during the worship service. Is the preaching relevant? Does the preacher connect with the congregation? Are the songs which are sung worshipful or are they mere routine? Is the order of worship conducive to the service and setting, or is it distracting? All of these questions require thoughtful refection by the church seeking to improve its health in worship.

"Ascribe to the Lord
the glory due his name;
worship the Lord
in the splendor of his holiness."

Psalm 29:2 NIV
