Hear Our Passion

Christ Presbyterian Church, founded in 1973, is open to families throughout the Greater Richmond area to collectively grow their knowledge and love for Jesus Christ and God’s Word. We encourage members to also discover the true answer to questions of life and eternity.

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.

“The LORD is my strength and my song, and He has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise Him, my father’s God, and I will exalt Him.”
Exodus 15:2

 

 

Worship

“Jesus Christ – The Founder of Salvation”

“In Him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in Him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of His glory.”

Ephesians 1:13,14

Music to Prepare Our Hearts and Minds – 9:20 a.m.

We Worship In The Glory Of Our Savior

Calling Ourselves to Worship – Hebrews 2:1-4

Leader:  Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it. For since the message declared by angels proved to be reliable, and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution, how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation?

People:  It was declared at first by the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard, while God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to His will. 

The Church Confesses Our Faith In Song: "Living Hope" (Song of the Month)

How great the chasm that lay between us
How high the mountain I could not climb
In desperation I turned to heaven
And spoke Your name into the night
Then through the darkness Your loving-kindness
Tore through the shadows of my soul
The work is finished the end is written
Jesus Christ my living hope

Who could imagine so great a mercy
What heart could fathom such boundless grace
The God of ages stepped down from glory
To wear my sin and bear my shame
The cross has spoken I am forgiven
The King of kings calls me His own
Beautiful Savior I’m Yours forever
Jesus Christ my living hope

Chorus

Hallelujah praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There’s salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ my living hope

Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence the Roaring Lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me
(REPEAT)
Jesus Yours is the victory whoa

Jesus Christ my living hope
Oh God You are my living hope

The Church Confesses Our Sins Together

Almighty God, we acknowledge and confess that we have sinned against You in thought, word, and deed; we have not loved You with all of our heart, soul, mind, and deed; we have not loved our neighbor as ourselves. 

Deepen within us our sorrow for the wrong we have done, and the good we have left undone. 

Lord, You are full of compassion and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy; there is always forgiveness with You!

Restore to us the joy of Your salvation; bind up that which is broken, give light to our minds, strength to our wills, and rest to our souls. Speak to each of us and let Your word abide with us until it has wrought in us Your holy will. 

Amen. 

Rejoicing In Our Forgiveness: "Come Ye Sinners"

 

Come, ye sinners, poor and wretched

Weak and wounded, sick and sore

Jesus, ready, stands to save you

Full of pity, joined with power

He is able, He is able

He is willing; doubt no more

 

Come ye needy, come, and welcome

God’s free bounty glorify

True belief and true repentance

Every grace that brings you nigh

Without money, without money

Come to Jesus Christ and buy

 

Come, ye weary, heavy laden

Bruised and broken by the fall

If you tarry ’til you’re better

You will never come at all

Not the righteous, not the righteous

Sinners Jesus came to call

 

Let not conscience make you linger

Nor of fitness fondly dream

All the fitness He requires

Is to feel your need of Him

This He gives you, this He gives you

‘Tis the Spirit’s rising beam

 

Lo! The Incarnate God, ascended

Pleads the merit of His blood

Venture on Him; venture wholly

Let no other trust intrude

None but Jesus, none but Jesus

Can do helpless sinners good

Thanking the Lord for His Presence Among Us

We Worship In Thankfulness For Our Salvation

Through Prayer – 2 Corinthians 1:5-7

For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too. If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; and if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which you experience when you patiently endure the same sufferings that we suffer. Our hope for you is unshaken, for we know that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in our comfort. 

Praying for the Church – Elder Jim Roszell

Through Giving – Romans 8:32

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him graciously give us all things?

Offering for the Ministry of the Church: "The Lord Is My Salvation"

The grace of God has reached for me

And pulled me from the raging sea

And I am safe on this solid ground

The Lord is my salvation

I will not fear when darkness falls

His strength will help me scale these walls

I’ll see the dawn of the rising sun

The Lord is my salvation

 

Who is like the Lord our God

Strong to save faithful in love

My debt is paid and the victory won

The Lord is my salvation

My hope is hidden in the Lord

He flow’rs each promise of His Word

When winter fades I know spring will come

The Lord is my salvation

In times of waiting times of need

When I know loss when I am weak

I know His grace will renew these days

The Lord is my salvation

Chorus

 

And when I reach my final day

He will not leave me in the grave

But I will rise He will call me home

The Lord is my salvation

Chorus

 

Glory be to God the Father

Glory be to God the Son

Glory be to God the Spirit

The Lord is our salvation

(Repeat)

 

The Lord is our salvation

The Lord is our salvation

We Share In The Savior’s Love

Invited to the Lord’s Table

Communing with Our Lord and One Another: "He Will Hold Me Fast"

When I fear my faith will fail
Christ will hold me fast 
When the tempter would prevail
He will hold me fast
I could never keep my hold 
Through life’s fearful path 
For my love is often cold
He must hold me fast

He will hold me fast
He will hold me fast
For my Savior loves me so
He will hold me fast

Those He saves are His delight
Christ will hold me fast
Precious in His holy sight
He will hold me fast
He’ll not let my soul be lost
His promises shall last
Bought by Him at such a cost 
He will hold me fast

Chorus

For my life He bled and died
Christ will hold me fast
Justice has been satisfied
He will hold me fast
Raised with Him to endless life
He will hold me fast 
‘Till our faith is turned to sight 
When He comes at last!

Chorus(2x)

We Go To Serve Our Savior In The World

Looking to Jesus, Our Founder – 1 Timothy 3:16, 6:15,16

Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness:  He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated by the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory…He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion. 

Amen.
