Worship at Jerusalem
Worship at Jerusalem is centered around Word and Sacrament. We take the inspired Word of God very seriously as it is revealed to us in the errorless Scriptures. Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples" (John 8:31). In our worship we look to meditate upon those teachings in Scripture, which assure us of our eternal salvation and give us comfort and guidance in our lives as Christians.
Worship at Jerusalem is also sacramental. Currently we celebrate Holy Communion on the first and third Sundays of every month. In this sacrament Jesus gives us his very own body and blood for the forgiveness of ours sins. We also baptize infants and adults. Through this powerful sacrament of rebirth and renewal God offers and gives free forgiveness and a new life in Christ.
The worship practices at Jerusalem are in line with the liturgical worship practices of the Christian and Lutheran church. Every Sunday we follow one of the liturgical orders of service found in our hymnal, Christian Worship: A Lutheran Hymnal. These orders of service offer freshness and variety while also providing consistency and familiarity. Their central focus is the gospel of Jesus Christ and the saving work he has done for us and all people.
