Why do we wear casual attire to worship service?

We dress casually because it is not about what you wear, but what you want. God is concerned with your heart. – Mark 7:6-8 (NIV)

Why is the NIV and Message Bible our translation of preference?

We use these translations because they are the most accurate English translations from the original Greek and Hebrew Bible.

Why are we non-denominational?

Denominations are man-made and are not located within the Bible. They are functions of tradition and not truths. No authority, other than God, guides the means, faith or order of our church. We are committed to God’s Holy Word. – Mark 7:6-8 (NIV)

Why are musical instruments used in worship service?

“Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; praise Him with the lute and harp! Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes! Praise Him with loud cymbals; praise Him with clashing cymbals!” – Psalms 150:3-5

Why do we give God offerings?

“But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly; and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” – II Corinthians 9:6-8

Why do we bring God the tithe?

“Bring all the tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour you out such blessings that there will not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” heaven and pour you out such blessings that there will not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” says the Lord of hosts. “And all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land.” says the Lord of hosts. -Malachi 3:10-12

Why do we lift our hands?

“Thus I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.” -Psalms 63:4
”Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord.” – Psalms 134:2

Why do we clap our hands during praise and worship?

“Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples! Shout to God with the voice of triumph!” – Psalms 47:1

What should I expect during TWC's Communion service?

19 And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This isMy body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 20 Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying,  “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.
(Luke 22:19-20)

Here at The Worship Center Christian Church, The Lord’s Supper isn’t just something we do out of tradition, rather it is a significant covenant meal we observe in remembrance of Jesus and the sacrifice he made in taking our place on the cross. When humankind was sentenced to death, Christ died for us.

During the last supper, a customary Jewish Passover meal, a lamb without spot or blemish and unleavened bread (Exodus 12: 1-13), was shared between Christ and His Disciples. Additionally, the meal required four cups of wine that were a significant part of the annual tradition.

Today, we understand that unleavened bread is baked with the absence of yeast, an ingredient that represents pride and arrogance. As such, when we come to the Lords table to eat of His body, we must not come with either pride or arrogance. The four cups shared not only represent His blood, but they are the cups of Salvation, Deliverance, Redemption and Fulfillment; all of which we must drink from. (Exodus 6: 6-7)

During every Communion service, The Worship Center leads its members and guest in partaking in The Lords Supper. No longer do we pass the trays of bread and juice from person-to-person and row-to-row, rather we celebrate this service as a communal event; inviting members to come forward collectively to the communion tables.

Each table is prepared with whole sheets of Matzo (unleavened) bread of which members break a piece and partake. Breaking off a piece from the whole reminds individuals of the significance in them being a part of a larger whole. The Matzo bread is unique in its design – there are stripes and bruises on the bread to signify that Christ “was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)

It is our belief that when you come to this table, you do so with the personal responsibility of participating with reverence, humility, and sincerity, understanding and proclaiming Christ’s great act of Love as we become One with Jesus. Partaking allows God to honor, reward and bless your coming.

After members have partaking in the body and blood of Christ, they are individually anointed and covered in a Prayer of Blessing.

While we understand that our process for sharing in The Lords Supper (Communion) may be different, we pride ourselves on being set apart as we have witnessed the Healing and Transformative Power of God at work in the lives of those who come to the table.

No matter what challenges you may find yourself facing—sin, drugs, sickness, worry, bitterness, hurt, strife, old habits and even financial difficulty—Christ died that you may be delivered through coming to the table and partaking in the Lord’s Supper. The body and blood of Jesus covers YOU and every area of your life.

Perhaps you have come to the table and have experienced the Power of God in your own lives. We invite you to take a moment and share with us the Victories you’ve gained from humbly approaching the table and partaking in the Body and Blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

We invite you to pray these prayers of agreement with God’s Word over your life, marriage, singleness, family, and finances.
