Soft music, dim candle lighting, and fog machines. Is that what we need in order to worship God?

Is there a connection between the Garden of Eden and Israel’s later places of worship?

See which tree the Menorah represents and what the Tablets of Law in the Ark of the Covenant reflect. See how easy it is to allow our corporate worship to lose its purity as we try to make people feel at home in the church.

What is the most important worship element in hymns—the words or the music? Listen to this message to learn how to analyze church music for its quality, both in biblical truth and poetry. Find out that songs either direct our attention to Heaven or to earth and that they are not designed just to make us feel better.

Like Isaiah when he was awed in the presence of God, we should be struck with God’s majesty and sovereignty as we worship Him.
