Join us for worship @ 10:30 on Sunday mornings.
What worship means to us...
At First Baptist Miami, worship is more than a style of music you might hear on Sunday morning. The Greek word proskuneo--which is translated as "worship" in the New Testament--literally means "to express in attitude or gesture one's complete dependence on or submission to a high authority figure" (taken from Walter Bauer's A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature). In essence, worship is about the posture of our lives.
As we believe that we are saved by grace alone through faith in Christ exclusively, we also believe that each and every person who professes to be a Christian should also live their lives in a posture of submission to Christ--a lifestyle of worship. So, yes, we sing songs in worship of Jesus who saves us! But we also strive to serve one another--putting others before ourselves; to give generously--both in the offering plate and in a place of service; to teach our children about the Gospel, in it's simplest yet still complete form; to pray continually for our world, which has turned its back on the Gospel; and to engage in the world through extreme measures, even unto death.
Worship is more than a song or a musical preference or even whether we raise our hands--it's a lifestyle defined by submission and sacrifice for the sake of the Gospel in the name of Jesus.
We strive to make worship accessible to everyone through sermons grounded in scripture, through scripture reading, through testimonies, through giving tithes and offerings, and through song selection and style of music. We desire to connect with God through our corporate worship on Sunday morning, and we desire to connect with one another through our shared experiences in worship, both inside and outside of the worship center.
