PRAISE CHORUSES

 

WE'VE COME THIS FAR BY FAITH

 

We've come this far by faith, leaning on the Lord,
Trusting in His holy Word, He's never failed me yet.
Oh, oh, oh, can't turn a-round,
We've come this far by faith.

 

Just the other day, I heard a man say

He didn't believe in God's -Word,
But I can truly say that I have found the way,
And He's never failed me yet.

 

Don't be discouraged

When troubles come your -way.
He'll bear all your burdens,
And turned all your night into day

  

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

YOU ARE THE LIVING WORD 

 

Bread of heaven sent down from glory 

Many things you were on earth 

A holy king, a carpenter 

You are the living word 

(repeat) 

 

Awesome ruler, gentle redeemer 

God with us, the living truth 

And what a friend we have in You 

You are the living word 

(repeat) 

 

Jesus, Jesus, that’s what we call You 

Manger born but on a tree 

You died to save humanity 

You are the living word! 

(repeat 4x) 

 Oh!  Oh! 

Oh!  Oh! 

Oh!  Oh! 

You are the living word! 

(repeat) 

 

Jesus, Jesus, that’s what we call You 

Jesus, Jesus, oh, oh, oh! 

You are the living word! 

(repeat

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

HE IS HERE 

 

He is here, praise His name. 

He is here, worship Him. 

He is here, magnify His name. 

Hallelujah!  Hallelujah! 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I SHALL WEAR A CROWN

 

I shall wear a crown

I shall wear a crown

When it's all over

When it's all over

 

I shall see His face

I shall see His face

When it's all over

When it's all over

 

I'm gonna put on my robe,

and tell the story how I made it over

 

Soon as I get home

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL

 

When peace like a river attendeth my way,
when sorrows like sea billows roll;
whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say,
"It is well, it is well with my soul."

 

REFRAIN
It is well (it is well) with my soul (with my soul)
it is well, it is well with my soul.

 

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
let this blest assurance control:
that Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
and has shed his own blood for my soul.

 

My sin oh, the bliss of this glorious thought
my sin, not in part, but the whole,
is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more;
praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul

 

O Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
the clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
the trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend;
even so, it is well with my soul.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

THE BLOOD NEVER LOSES

 

Put it up to the greatest issue
Put it up to the highest mountain
Put it to the test
The blood never loses

Put it up to transgression
Put it up to recession
Put it to the test
The blood never loses
The intensity doesn't even matter
When the blood steps in things shatters
Your problems can't compete where they don't compare
The blood of Jesus can interrupt warfare
His children He never refuses
The blood never loses!
The blood never loses!
(repeat from beginning)


The intensity, it doesn't even matter
When the blood steps in things shatters
Your problems can't compete where they don't compare
The blood of Jesus can interrupt warfare
His children He never refuses
The blood never loses

Oh, I found the blood of Jesus
Can break through strongholds
Break through principalities
It won't lose

Oh, the blood of Jesus
Can protect you from wickedness
It speaks louder than words
It won't lose

People are gonna wonder how you're gonna win
Wonder how your end's gonna be
And you tell 'em

 

The blood's gonna help me win
The blood's gonna help me win

 

VAMP
Put the blood on it, The blood on it
The blood on it, The blood on it
The blood on it, the blood never loses

People gonna wonder how you're gonna win
Wonder how your end's gonna be
And you tell 'em The blood's gonna help me win

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.
