“Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God, instruction about cleansing rites, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.” (Hebrews 6:1-2, NIV)
The primary focus of this blog is to exam our identity in Christ, individual/personal worship experiences, and our offerings in worship and service. The mission of this blog is to promote healthy dialogue regarding our “Christian walk and service” and how to improve upon it. Being a true worshipper is not about religion but relationship with God. Therefore, this blog is not based on any specific denominational beliefs but is based upon the Trinitarian doctrine. The intent of this blog to concentrate on building upon our individual relationships with God through spiritual disciplines; thus empowering our corporate worship experiences.
“Not Church As Usual” is not a catchphrase. It is a declaration that we, the Body of Christ, are the Church. By this declaration we affirm “not to have church”, “not to do church”, but we are and will be the Church. We will not be part-time worshippers expecting the full-time benefits of God. We will not practice religion but have an intimate relationship with God. We, the Universal Church, will “Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness”. (Psalm 29:1 KJV) Our worship is and will be the response to God’s revelation of Himself as Creator and Redeemer.
