Worship is of the utmost importance at GVBC! Why? Because worship is exactly what we were created to do! It is the answer to the timeless question:
"What is the meaning of life?"
Music is simply one way we choose to express worship to our incredible God! Here at GVBC, we take a contemporary approach to worship as we incorporate our services with both modern and classic songs to give praise to our Creator.
HE is the focus of our Worship for He is worthy of our praise.
The apostle Paul described true worship perfectly in Romans 12:1-2: “I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable, or well pleasing and perfect.”
This passage contains all the elements of true worship. First, there is the motivation to worship: “the mercies of God.” God’s mercies are everything He has given us that we don’t deserve: eternal love, eternal grace, the Holy Spirit, everlasting peace, eternal joy, saving faith, comfort, strength, wisdom, hope, patience, kindness, honor, glory, righteousness, security, eternal life, forgiveness, reconciliation, justification, sanctification, freedom, intercession and much more. The knowledge and understanding of these incredible gifts motivate us to pour forth praise and thanksgiving—in other words, worship!
