“Defining and Defending Corporate

» Why are we here?

Corporate worship is the gathering together of people for the sole purpose of knowing and responding to the One True God as revealed in the Holy Scriptures.
Does God really care if you come and how you come?

“If you're not worshipping on Monday the way you did the day before, perhaps you're not worshipping Him at all.”
—A.W. Tozer
