Why Posture Matters in Worship
Go Ahead, Raise Your Hands in Church Our bodies are as much part of us as our inward selves. When we pray and worship, it’s good to incorporate both body and soul. We may be able to better engage mentally when we engage bodily.
Sing Your Heart Out At Church (Even If You Hate the Music) We may have different worship-style comfort zones, but we’re worshiping the same God. That’s why, whether we’re Presbyterian or Pentecostal, we shouldn’t let our worship preferences get in the way of our worship participation. God is too glorious to not worship enthusiastically, even if the style of worship stretches us beyond our comfort zone.
Welcome to the Warehouse. Have you ever heard a sermon and thought, "how in the world did he discover that?" Or "Where did he get that idea?" Every week at Cornerstone Church, two teams dig into the biblical text that will be taught during our weekend services. We spend hours talking about the text, context, culture, you name it. But you can't stuff ALL that into a 30-minute message. That's where we come in. We'll show you the stuff in the warehouse that didn't make it to the stage.
Worship is… A short video with snippets from Tim Keller’s message about worship.
Worship - Tim Keller tells us what worship is, the purpose and value of it, and how we can get more skillful at it.
Are We Truly Worshiping (Part 1) - It’s possible for churches to have people gathered, have access to God’s Word, display the outward forms of worship, and participate in a lot of religious activity and yet still miss the heart of genuine worship. In this message from David Platt from Mark 11:12–26, we’re reminded that true worship includes fear and reverence before God, confession of sin, and faithful prayer. Christ’s cleansing of the temple is a humbling reminder of the kind of worship God deserves.
