Like everything that we do at Eastside Church of Christ, we strive to follow the pattern established in the New Testament for our worship.
Worshiping in Spirit and In Truth
The foundational tenant of New Testament worship is worshiping in spirit and in truth. Jesus said,
But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. (John 4:23-24)
In a similar vein, Phillipians 3:3 says that we worship in the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus. Worshiping in spirit and truth means that our mind and most importantly our heart, is focused on God.
