Sunday worship isn't just for individuals to draw near to God, it's exists to praise God together with His people.
Christians come together to worship God at church each week, but many aren't sure exactly what worship is or why they do it. For some, it's a warm-up for the sermon. For others, worship is a me-and-Jesus moment. What is the biblically informed way to see corporate worship?
In this addition to the 9Marks Building Healthy Churches series, Matt Merker explores the Bible's teaching about corporate worship as an activity in which God gathers the church by His grace, unto His glory, for His people's mutual good, and before the world's gaze. This book presents a biblical and theological perspective on this often misunderstood topic so believers can participate in gathered worship that is God-centered and mutually edifying, rather than for self-fulfillment.
