Praise/Worship Resources

This is an instructional area for training and equipping Praise and Worship mission of Alpha & Omega Christian Worship Center.  Our theme for 2014 is based on two scriptures;

Ephesians 5:17-20

“Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.  And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

And Colossians 3:16

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”

  • True worship is both spiritual and intellectual. “True worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth” (John 4:24).
  • Heavenly worshipers worship the God of the past, present and future. “Day and night they never stop saying: Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come” (Rev. 4:8; see also Rev. 1:4,8).
  • In the New Testament, God endorses three primary song forms: psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God” (Col. 3:16; see also Eph. 5:19, 20).
