worship

Jesus said, “But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way.” (John 4:23) 


Worship is more about attitude than it is about action. God desires heart-felt worship. There are a variety of ways to worship. Some people are more comfortable with quiet worship while others like it loud. At Hamlin Assembly, we have a variety of worship. At least once per quarter, we sing some of the older songs and hymns. Most Sundays we sing contemporary worship. But worship comes from the heart. 


How we worship: 

We sing with all our hearts because the Bible says, “Speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord.” (Ephesians 5:18-19) 


We clap and shout unto God because in the Bible we read, "Come, everyone! Clap your hands! Shout to God with joyful praise!” (Psalm 47:1). 


We lift our hands in praise because the Bible says, “Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.” (1 Timothy 2:8)


We play musical instruments because the Bible says, “Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals.” (Psalm 150:3-5) 


We anoint with oil for divine healing because the Bible says, "Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord" (James 5:14).


We pray together because the Bible says, “Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.” (1 Timothy 2:8) 


We dance before the LORD because the Bible says, "Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with timbrel and harp." (Psalm 149:3) 


We allow the operation of the spiritual gifts because the Bible says, “What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a song, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up.” (1 Corinthians 14:26). 


We share testimonies because the Bible says, "Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story—those he redeemed from the hand of the foe.” Psalm 107:2

At Hamlin, Men's ministry is about challenging each other to possess the following values, that we might all be: 


Transparent – Men who are free from the secrets that men keep

Spiritual Leaders – Men who model the importance of time with God and display a zeal for Christ’s body, the Church


Adventurous – Men who creatively express their masculine spirit through their uniqueness within the body of Christ


Heroes at Home - Men who are heroes to their wives and children. 


Authentically Confident – Men who know who they are and whose they are. These are men who realize that greatness is within them because the Spirit of God lives in them. These men are secure and confident in whom God has made them.

As Kingdom Women, we seek a personal relationship with our Savior Jesus Christ above all else. We know that once this truth is a reality in our lives, everything else will fall into place. Jesus is there to help and guide us through difficult times and rejoices with us when we give Him the glory for all of it. Kingdom Women recognize that our relationship with Jesus should be shared with others, so that others may experience God's grace and the eternal life He's promised in the Kingdom of God to those who personally accept Christ's sacrifice on the cross. 


Matthew 6:33 -- "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
