What is our Sunday Worship like?
At Pueblo West Baptist Church, we strive to follow the principles and patterns God prescribes in Scripture. Here are the elements you will find in our Lord’s Day worship.
Reading the Word: We believe it is our duty to read Scripture publicly. Therefore, we read a call to worship, a selected text from either the Old Testament or New Testament, the passage being preached, and often a closing benediction from the Bible.
Preaching of the Word: We set aside a significant portion of our Lord’s Day worship for the preaching of God’s Word. During this time, the Word of God is opened, read, interpreted, explained, and applied.
Prayer: We pray several times throughout our worship. We ask the Lord to bless our worship; we pray for our members, like-minded congregations, and our government officials. We thank the Lord for His goodness and praise Him as the blessed God; we ask the Lord to aid us as we seek to live for His glory.
Singing: We sing to one another in the form of congregational singing. We select hymns that are theologically sound and intended to be sung by a congregation. A primary source is the Hymns of Grace hymnal.
Baptism and the Lord’s Supper: We believe that Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are a means of grace received through faith alone. We baptize those who have made a profession of faith in Christ Jesus, and we partake of the Lord’s Supper every six weeks.
