Believers gathering regularly with one heart to praise and glorify God for His mighty acts and tender mercies, chiefly the great personal love demonstrated at the cross. At the Canyon church, we seek to honor our Creator and Redeemer by worshipping in Spirit and truth with the attitude of humility displayed in Jesus. You are invited to join us each Sunday morning at 10:30 for the following:
Because the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus are central to the gospel message, we emphasize participation in the Lord’s Supper (Communion) as the core of our worship experience. Here we consider and remember the sacrifice of Christ and appreciate the divine unity it gives to all believers. We invite all people of faith to share the bread and wine as it is passed during our worship time.
Bible reading and study
We believe God has revealed Himself in scripture, and so we learn to know and trust Him through study, exposition, and contemplation of the Bible. We read the scriptures publicly and listen actively to the preaching of the Word so we may grow in the grace and truth of Jesus. We desire “that the Word of Christ richly dwell within us.” We invite your personal response to the Lord and His Word.
Worship on Sundays cultivates an open heart that hears and obeys the Holy Spirit in ways that equip us for Monday through Saturday service. Genuine worship sponsors holy living. Divine communication is a two-way process, and that makes us a praying people. We believe God inhabits our praises and hears our petitions. (Psalm 22:3) We pray believing “God is and that He rewards those who seek Him.”
Our assemblies ring with songs of joy as we praise God with “the fruit of our lips.” Like the early church, we “praise God and teach and encourage one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs.” You’ll notice we sing acapella (voices only) and find that it’s inspiring to hear and allows equal participation from every worshipper and we are all led by the worship leader and praise team.
Also in agreement with the First Century church, we take opportunity during the assembly to return a portion of our physical blessings back to God as an expression of thankfulness. We offer God not only our hearts, but our first-fruits as well.
Until the Lord returns, we faithfully worship and invite you to lose yourself in worship to Him.
