Q: What is the Sunday morning worship service like?
A: You will find four major elements that are consistent in our worship service at APBC.
Our Sunday morning worship service aims to make the Gospel central. We find beauty in blending older hymns and newer songs that teach us biblical truth as we sing praises to the Lord together. Blending music helps us to remember that Christianity is nothing new. Rather, the Gospel of Jesus is a historical truth that must be passed down from generation to generation. At APBC, we embrace bridging the gap between the old and the new.
Prayer is essential to the life of the church. We believe prayer is necessary because we are dependent on God. Prayer is the means through which we are able to discern God's will by helping us conform our lives to the image of Jesus Christ. We incorporate prayer regularly throughout the service.
The Word of God is central to the life of APBC because in the Word is where we see the Gospel revealed. Without the Word of God we will cease to exist as a church. Therefore, we make it a primary task to read the Word together every Sunday morning when we gather for worship.
Preaching at APBC is expositional, meaning that it works to make the main point(s) of the biblical passage the main point(s) of the sermon. We want to take the main point(s) of the passage and apply it to our lives while trusting that the Holy Spirit will use the Word to conform us to the image of Jesus.
