Answers for Pastors

Why is sound doctrine essential for worship?
 
Sound doctrine is essential for worship because…
  1. Christian worship is our adoring response to who God is. Worship is rendering to the Lord the glory due his name (Psalms 29:2). Worship is not an ecstatic, contentless, emotional experience. Rather, it is our heartfelt response in word, song, and deed to God’s inherent worthiness, in order to magnify his glory.
  2. if we don’t know the truth about God, we can’t worship him. True worship, Jesus said, is in Spirit and in truth (John 4:24.
  3. our knowledge of God is what fuels our worship. We praise God in song and prayer and live lives that bring him glory because he is holy, loving, just, powerful, sovereign, and good. Worship is a response to who God is and what he does. No sound doctrine, no worship.
