Faithful Reformed worship is: God-centered, a divine-human conversation, personal, formed by the presence of Christ in both word and sacrament, "home grown" and nourished in the rich soil of the whole church.
Worship in the Reformed tradition: follows a biblical pattern of sin, salvation, and service; embraces both form and freedom; is biblical; is missional; nurtures both head and heart.
