LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD
THE CHIEF END OF MAN; GLORIFY GOD AND ENJOY HIM FOREVER!
Love the Lord your God with all of your heart and with all of your soul and with all your mind!
That's what Jesus said. But what does that mean. It means that you put God in the number one position of importance in your life. Higher than your hobbies, higher than your career, higher than your hobbies, higher even than your family; God is the first one we are called to love. We love him with all that we are, all that we have, and in all that we do.
What does that look like? WORSHIP.
WORSHIP is when we recognize God for who he is, and express our love for him directly (through our corporate and private times of worship) and indirectly (as we live our life in such a way that we bring glory and attention to God and not ourselves).
The bible teaches that that we are to live as to make our lives LIVING SACRIFICES before God. (Romans 12:1,2) That means that all we do should honor God.
At Hickory Church, we believe that worship is the number one thing God wants from us. So we strive to lead you into living lives of honor. We do this in 3 ways...
1. Corporate Worship with the Body of Jesus Christ!
2. Worship in the Life of a Believer!
3. Worship in the Serving of Others!
