SCC Core Commitments: God-Centered Worship

A continuation of a series devoted to explaining some of the foundational commitments of our church.

Today in broader evangelical culture, a lot of what is called worship by churches would better be described as "performance." In some cases, the worship leader's face is even shown on large screens as they "lead" worship. At SCC, we believe and strive to convey that congregational worship is not a performance, but in fact is a time intended to lift every heart and mind up to God and His glory, both in who He is and what He has done for us. The worship service is first and foremost a time to glorify and exalt God.

Songs that we sing are chosen with this in mind. The way the Word is preached takes this into account as we gather to hear from the living God in the exposition of His Word. We give of our finances ultimately as an offering of worship to Him. We celebrate the Lord's Supper in obedience to Him and as a means of remembrance of Him.

The worship of the church should be a continual reminder of how glorious God is, how unworthy and sinful we are, how amazing the grace of God given to us in Jesus Christ is, and how much we continually need Him for all things. As our minds are set on these truths, our hearts will be lifted up in worship of the great and glorious God who created and saved us. Our souls will be satisfied in a lasting way that no performance could ever provide.

SCC strives for God-centered worship for the glory of God and for the good of His people.
