Church Priority: To worship God

According to the Bible, humanity’s primary purpose is to glorify God and to enjoy him forever. To glorify God means to demonstrate how wonderful he is through our thoughts, words, and actions. To the extent that we can do this every day by obeying him and sharing him with others, in a sense, all of life can be an act of worship. But God is especially delighted when his people deliberately set aside time to come together for the specific purpose of worshiping him. The Bible says that God is “enthroned on the praises” of his people (Psalm 22:3, ESV). Hence, the worship of God lies at the center of all we do at Providence.
