PRAISE CHORUSES

HALLELUJAH ANYHOW

I believe I'll testify, God's been good to me
Through every test and trail, I've got the victory
The enemy has tried his best to make me turn around, bring me down
But my God has never failed me yet; so, I'm gonna stand my ground.
No matter what comes my way, I'll lift my voice and say,
Hallelujah anyhow

Wait a minute one more time,I think I'll say it again.
God's been so good to me and He's my closet friend.
I've come too far to turn around now
I'm gonna stand, I'm gonna wait; watch God work it somehow
No matter what comes my way, I'll lift my voice and say,
Hallelujah anyhow

Oh Hallelu, Hallelu anyhow

Hallelu, Hallelu anyhow
Hallelu, Hallelu anyhow

No matter what comes my way, I'll lift my voice say

VAMP

Hallelu - anyhow
Hallelu - anyhow - I'll be singing

Hallelu, hallelu, anyhow!

IN JESUS NAME

CHORUS

Jesus, forever the same

Jesus, omnipotent reigns

Jesus, let earth proclaim

that all is forgiven in Jesus' name

REPEAT CHORUS

In Jesus' name, every stronghold is broken

In Jesus' name, the captives go free

In Jesus' name, all things are possible

Yes it's possible in Jesus' name

In Jesus' name, the enemy is scattered

In Jesus' name, this oppression must cease

In Jesus' name, when two or three have gathered

God is with us in Jesus' name

Jesus, Jesus

REPEAT CHORUS

some will try to deceive you

wolf disguising as sheep

no weapon formed against you

It just won't prosper in Jesus' name


In Jesus' name, He's the hope of my salvation

In Jesus' name, I will trust and believe

In Jesus' name, I knock, the door will open

All of my blessings are in Jesus' name

Jesus, Jesus


REPEAT CHORUS

In Jesus' name, all of you are welcome

In Jesus' name, the battle's already won

In Jesus' name, yes blind eyes still open

There's healing power in Jesus' name

In Jesus' name, forgetting those things behind me

In Jesus' name, pressing toward the things that lie ahead

In Jesus' name, He's the prize of my high calling

I'm a new creation in Jesus' name

REPEAT CHORUS

There's power-  Jesus

Healing - Jesus

Salvation - Jesus

Forgiveness - Jesus

Yes it's all in HIs name

BELIEVE FOR IT

They say this mountain can't be moved
They say these chains will never break
But they don't know You like we do
There is power in Your name

We've heard that there is no way through
We've heard the tide will never change
They haven't seen what You can do
There is power in Your name
So much power in Your name

CHORUS
Move the immovable
Break the unbreakable
God, we believe
God, we believe for it
From the impossible
We'll see a miracle
God, we believe
God, we believe for it

We know that hope is never lost
For there is still an empty grave
God, we believe, no matter what
There is power in Your name
So much power in Your name

REPEAT CHORUS

You are the way when there seems to be no way
We trust in You, God, You have the final say
You are the way when there seems to be no way
We trust in You, God, You have the final say

REPEAT CHORUS

God, we believe
God, we believe for it

LORD KEEP ME DAY BY DAY

Lord keep me day by day

In a pure and perfect way

I want to live, I want live Lord

in that building not made by hands


I'm just a stranger here

Travelling through this barren land

Something I know, there's a building

in that building not made by hands


Lord keep my body strong

So that I can do no wrong

Lord give me grace just to win this Christian race

to a building not made by hands

_____________________________________________

THE STORM IS PASSING OVER

Encourage my soul and let us journey on

For the night is dark and I am far from home

Thanks be to God, the morning light appears

The storm is passing over

The storm is passing over

The storm is passing over, Hallelu

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Halelujah

The storm is passing over

The storm is passing over

The storm is passing over, Hallelu

HOLY COMMUNION

When we approach God's Holy Table, we do so with respect and reverence
for who God is. It is not done with noise, commotion, moving around,
or confusion.  Please respect God by respecting His Holy Table.

CONFESSION OF FAITH

The church acknowledges as its head, God, the Creator of all heaven
and earth, Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the Holy Spirit the
Comforter. It acknowledges as brothers and sisters in Christ, all who
share in this confession.  It believes that all of those who are
committed to building of God's Kingdom and strive to keep His
commandments are invited to partake of the Lord's Supper and that all
such, with their families, are invited to the Ordinance of Baptism.

AFFIRMATION OF FAITH:

“APOSTLES” CREED

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and
in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy
Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was
crucified, dead and buried. The third day he arose from the dead; he
ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God, the Father
Almighty:  from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Church universal], the communion of
saints, the forgiveness of sin, the resurrection of the body and the
life everlasting. Amen.

THE LORD’S SUPPER

I Corinthians 11: 23 – 34

Pastor:       For I have received of the Lord that which also I
delivered unto you. That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was
betrayed took bread:

People:     And when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, Take
eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance
of me.

Pastor:       After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had
supped, saying, this cup is the New Testament in my blood: this do ye,
as often as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

People:     For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye
do show the Lord’s death till he comes.

Pastor:       Wherefore, whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink
this cup of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood
of the Lord.

People:     But let a person examine themselves, and so let them eat
of that bread, and drink of that cup.

Pastor:       For they that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and
drinketh damnation to themselves, not discerning the Lord’s body.

People:     For this cause, many are weak in [Faith] and sick among
you, and many sleep.

Pastor:       For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

People:     But when we judge, we are chastened of the Lord, that we
should not be condemned with the world.

Pastor:       Wherefore, my friends, when ye come together to eat,
tarry one for another.


All:           And if a person hungers, let them eat at home; that
they come not together to this table, disregarding its purpose, and
unto condemnation.  And the rest will I set in order when I come.
