Hear Our Passion
Other services can be boring and often irrelevant. At Christ Presbyterian Church, we believe that worship should be enjoyed and meaningful. Our Presbyterian congregation is set forth in the Westminster Confession of Faith and Larger and Shorter Catechisms because these statements truly embrace our beliefs. Below, you’ll find the music for each date of worship and sermons uploaded for your listening convenience.
“So that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was according to the eternal purpose that He has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
“The Church United In The Gospel”
“Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel.”
Music to Prepare Our Hearts – 9:20 am
The Church Gathers to Glorify Our God
Called to Praise – Psalm 86:8-10; Matthew 16:15-18
Leader: There is none like You among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like Yours.
People: He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Leader: All the nations You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord, and shall glorify Your name.
People: And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.
Leader: For You are great and do wondrous things; You alone are God. People: And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
Responding in Song: "O Church, Arise"
O church, arise and put your armor on
Hear the call of Christ our Captain
For now the weak can say that they are strong
In the strength that God has given
With shield of faith and belt of truth
We’ll stand against the devil’s lies
An army bold whose battle cry is “Love!”
Reaching out to those in darkness
Our call to war, to love the captive soul
But to rage against the captor
And with the sword that makes the wounded whole
We will fight with faith and valor
When faced with trials on every side
We know the outcome is secure
And Christ will have the prize for which He died
An inheritance of nations
Come, see the cross where love and mercy meet
As the Son of God is stricken
Then see His foes lie crushed beneath His feet
For the Conqueror has risen!
And as the stone is rolled away
And Christ emerges from the grave
This vict’ry march continues till the day
Ev’ry eye and heart shall see Him
So Spirit, come, put strength in ev’ry stride
Give grace for ev’ry hurdle
That we may run with faith to win the prize
Of a servant good and faithful
As saints of old still line the way
Retelling triumphs of His grace
We hear their calls and hunger for the day
When, with Christ, we stand in glory
The Church Confessing Our Faith – The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and Earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From there He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

Interceding Through Our Faithful God – Acts 12:4,5
And when he (Herod) had seized him, he put him in prison, delivering him over to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out to the people. So Peter was kept in prison, but earnest prayer for him was made to God by the church.
Praying for One Another – Elder Jesse Owens
Through Giving for His Kingdom – 1 Corinthians 16:1-3
Now concerning the collection for the saints: as I directed the churches of Galatia, so you also are to do. On the first day of every week, ach of you is to put something aside and store it up, as he may prosper, so that there will be no collecting when I come. And when I arrive, I will send those whom you accredit by letter to carry your gift to Jerusalem.
Our Offering for the Work of His Church
Proclaiming His Goodness: “The Church's One Foundation”
The church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord
She is his new creation by water and the Word
From heaven he came and sought her to be his holy bride
With his own blood he bought her, and for her life he died
Elect from every nation, yet one o’er all the earth
Her charter of salvation, one Lord, one faith, one birth
One holy name she blesses, partakes one holy food
And to one hope she presses, with every grace endued
Yet she on earth hath union with God the Three in One
And mystic sweet communion with those whose rest is won
O happy ones and holy! Lord, give us grace that we
Like them, the meek and lowly, on high may dwell with thee

The Church Rests in the Gospel of Christ
Preparing Our Hearts to Commune with Our Lord – Colossians 1:22,23
He has now reconciled you in His body of flesh by His death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before Him, if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven.

Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Our Thanks in Song: "Jesus, Firm Foundation"
How firm a foundation you saints of the Lord
Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word
What more can He say than to you He has said
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled
Fear not He is with us O be not dismayed
For He is our God our Sustainer and Strength
He’ll be our Defender and cause us to stand
Upheld by His merciful almighty hand
How firm our foundation
How sure our salvation
And we will not be shaken
Jesus firm foundation
The soul that is trusting in Jesus as Lord
Will press on enduring the darkest of storm
And though even hell should endeavor to shake
He’ll never no never no never forsake
He’ll never no never no never forsake
Age to age He stands faithful to the end
All may fade away but He will remain
He will remain
