As believers, Christ Jesus is at the center of everything we do. This is true especially when we gather together for worship. Without Jesus, we would have no reason to gather for worship. We would be separated from God and each other. But Jesus, our Savior, has restored our relationship with God by his death and resurrection. This brings us two-fold joy. We open our hearts to receive his saving and empowering gospel. We also open our arms to offer to Christ our thanks, our lives, our everything.
