Why do we worship the way we do? This is the question this booklet seeks to answer. It looks at corporate worship from a Presbyterian practice. It examines the principles of worship, preparing for worship, and the elements of liturgy: salutation, prayer, singing, offering, place of sacraments, and the benediction.
A proper understanding of corporate worship is that it is rooted in God who calls His body together into the official assembly of public worship. The assembly comes together to meet with God as God's covenant people. Therefore, the worship service is not directed by personal preferences, but by God who calls His people as His own.
Working from the book of Revelation, this article highlights elements that are essential for true worship of God. True worship is shaped by a right fear of God and involves thanksgiving expressed in singing and a life of service to God.
