Worship

 

"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord"; "Lifting up holy hands unto the Lord"; "Let the high praises of God be in their mouth"; "Praise him with the timbrel and dance"; "Clap your hands O ye people, shout unto God with the voice of triumph".

These and many other Bible verses are fulfilled in the worship of the membership of Maranatha Ministries. In the special presence of God that such worship brings, lives are changed and God is greatly glorified.

Sometimes the worship takes on the nature of joyful celebration. Other times people are caught up in the glory of God. Shedding tears of joy, they often find themselves at loss for words to express the love they feel for God.

By allowing people to express their worship to God in their individual fashion, the church provides a means of personal as well as collective involvement with the presence of God.
