Q: What is Praise? and What is Worship?
A: Praise is the act of ascending, approaching, and moving toward God with a demonstration of gratitude. Lifting our Hands is a symbolic act of surrender, openness or nakedness, and receptivity to God (Psalm 63:4, 124:2 and I Timothy 2:8). Joyous clapping gives God appreciation and brings victorious glory (Psalms 47:1). Shouting for joy demonstrates excitement toward God for all God has done (Exodus 15:11. 30:11 & Samuel 6:14). Worship is the act of encounter and the place where we meet God. In worship, God’s power is released in our midst and might acts are revealed. It takes praise the Lead you into Worship. Below you will find some Biblical references as to why we worship the way we do. Feel free to participate with us in worship to God.
