CHURCH WORSHIP

                                                                 AS SET UP BY THE APOSTLES IN THE FIRST CENTURY CHURCH

                                                                                    ACCORDING TO "ACTS OF THE APOSTLES"

 

Across the top, are the types of worship we have today.  Look up examples in Acts to see how it was done by the first-century church.

*Although they fasted, it involved skipping meals, and usually more time than a time of worship would involve.  Should we fast today?

 

SHOULD WE TRY TO WORSHIP AS THE FIRST-CENTURY CHURCH WORSHIPPED?  ARE WE ADDING OR TAKING FROM THE SCRIPTURES IF WE DON'T?
