What are the defining characteristics of the Calvary Chapel Movement?
In this series, members of the Calvary Chapel Association Leadership Council define some of Calvary Chapel’s historic Core Convictions on key topics such as ministry, church leadership, theology and more.
Worship can be defined as the act of worshipping; an expression of profound love, admiration and adoration. In the book of Revelation the scene in heaven is filled with heavenly voices worshipping the Lord. It is part of the lifeblood of Calvary Chapel: whether we are alone, in the congregation, with or without musical accompaniment we lift our voices to the heavens in praise to our living God. We sing hymns, choruses, contemporary and traditional songs with a broad spectrum of instruments as sampled in Psalm 150. We worship God for what He has done for us through His Son’s death and resurrection. We are a people of praise and the voices we lift up here on earth will continue for eternity to worship in heaven. “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).
