Worship

This category contains items about Worshipping God and related topics.


Who among us has not gazed up into the nighttime sky and wondered why we are here? What is our place in the universe? What is the purpose of life? Is God real? If so, what is He doing?  What is the Church, and what is its purpose? 

The Bible reveals life is all about relationships.  The most important relationship we can have is with our very Creator—our loving eternal Father and His Son Jesus Christ.  Relationships lie at the heart of our approach to God and fellowman, and God has made it possible for us to bridge the gaps between us with His Holy Spirit.

The following guides are designed to help you understand and grow these important relationships using the Bible as our study guide.  All our studies are freely available to read or download, and most are also available in printed format.  

Easter: The Rest of the Story

Easter: The Rest of the Story

Many believing Christians celebrate Easter as a way to honour Jesus Christ's resurrection. But Easter is a day with very different roots—stretching long ago into pre-Christian paganism. The Bible alone has the truth of Jesus' life, death and resurrection, and it shows a different set of celebrations—the Passover and Days of Unleavened Bread—that give us the real story that Easter doesn't tell us.

God's Holy Day Plan

God's Holy Day Plan

Is it possible to know what the future holds for us? The Creator of mankind does have a plan for us, and He reveals it to us through an annual cycle of festivals described in the Scriptures. It is an astounding plan offering an incredible future to every man, woman, and child who has ever lived. This booklet will help you understand the incredible truth about what lies ahead for all humanity.

Holidays or Holy Days?

Holidays or Holy Days?

Many people are shocked to discover the origins of our most popular religious holidays. They are also surprised to find that the days God commands us to observe in the Bible-the same days Jesus Christ and the apostles kept-are almost universally ignored. Why? Also, why are today's supposedly Christian holidays observed with so many rituals and customs that are not sanctioned anywhere in the Bible? In this booklet you'll discover detailed answers to these questions.

Keeping the Feast of Tabernacles

Keeping the Feast of Tabernacles

The words Feast and Tabernacles conjure up a picture of something impossibly remote and archaic. Yet the Feast of Tabernacles looks towards the future and pictures a time for which mankind has yearned down through the ages.

Sunset to Sunset - God's Sabbath Rest

Sunset to Sunset - God's Sabbath Rest

Why did God command a day of rest to begin with? Did He have a purpose for it, and, if so, what is that purpose? Is the Sabbath relevant at all for humankind today? Does it make sense in today's world? The questions go on and on. Why should there be such confusion about one of the 10 basic guiding principles and laws God gave mankind? There are answers to these questions, and you don't have to look far to discover them. They can be found in the Bible. Join us for a journey through the Bible to discover God's Sabbath Rest. In this booklet we will answer these basic questions.
