When you hear the word ‘worship’ you may think of a certain style of music, or maybe religious rituals, or maybe you think of singing songs before and after a pastor preaches. But put simply, to worship is to ascribe worth to someone or something. Worship is more than just singing songs in church, it is declaring and displaying what we find most worthy. With this definition, we see that everyone worships. The question is not whether you are worshiping, but rather who or what are you worshiping.

Scripture has a lot to say about worship:

  • Psalm 29:1-2 – Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.
  • Romans 12:1 – Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.
  • Hebrews 12:28 – Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe

Biblical worship is the full-life response to who God is and what He has done

It is declaring and displaying that God is worth more than anything else and we are called to do this in every aspect of our lives.

Worship the Lord when you sing

Worship Him when you work

Worship Him when you enjoy a meal or a sunset

Worship Him when you laugh and when you cry

Worship Him when you lay down at night and when you rise in the morning

Worship Him in the chaos and the quiet

Worship Him on the mountain and in the valley.

Worship Him in all circumstances of life, it is what you were made for and He is worthy of it.

Worship Services

When we, as the people of God, gather together week in and week out to worship God, we embrace the life-restoring grace of Jesus together. When we sing the glorious truth of the Gospel together, we cherish God’s presence with us, remind ourselves and one another of who He is and what He has done, allow Him to lead and guide us out of darkness towards light, life, and freedom.

Our prayer is that our gatherings at Restoration Church would serve to stir one another up and spur one another on towards love and good works — that our worship together would be an overflow of our full life of worship to the One who is truly worthy.

Restoration Church Worship Service Values

Faithful - our worship should focus on Christ, Scripture, God's grace and his ongoing call to respond to his grace in our lives


Expectant - our worship should assume a divine encounter and appointment for all present, both the body of Christ and others who are curious, with the one, true, living God


Purposeful - our worship should reflect the rhythm of the encounter of God’s people with him as seen in Scripture (gathering / the Word / response / sending)


Accessible - our worship should keep in mind those who are not yet part of the body of Christ through choosing worship elements that are understandable and designing sermons that take into account not only believers but those who are curious, skeptical or resistant about God.


Participatory - our worship should involve all participants fully in worship through singable music, story-sharing, prayers, shared leadership, incorporating children and youth
