We gather to worship the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
"In worship the people of God acknowledge God present in the world and in their lives.
As they respond to God’s claim and redemptive action in Jesus Christ, believers are transformed and renewed.
In worship the faithful offer themselves to God and are equipped for God’s service in the world."
