First Christian Church
First Christian Church of Leisure World teaches from God’s word, the Holy Bible, most often verse by verse. It is a friendly church that welcomes all visitors.
All services, Bible studies and prayer meetings are suspended at this time due to the rise in COVID- 19 and delta variant cases.
As the body of Christ, Christians are called to worship the true and living God. The Bible gives instructions and examples of how Christians should worship.
The book of Psalms is the greatest resource in the Bible of examples of when to worship. King David worshiped and prayed morning and night and several times in between. He worshiped when he was hiding from his enemies, when he was celebrating victories, when he was broken in spirit and when he needed guidance from God.
Where to worship is not as clearly stated, however it is also not restrictive to any certain place. Yes, there was worship in the temple in Jerusalem and at the Ark of the Covenant. Jesus gave the example of spending time alone to pray and praise his father. It is apparent that Jesus wants us to worship in spirit when he told the Samarian woman in John 4:23, “But an hour is coming, and now is when the true worshipers will worship the father in spirit and truth: for such people the father seeks to be his worshipers.” Spending time seeking the truth in God’s word, the Bible, will inspire true worship of the living God.
