At Christ Gospel Church, we are blessed to worship God in Spirit and Truth (John 4:24). Worship and prayer services are energetic times of joy and celebration. A visitor to our church will hear congregants praying in tongues for the edification of their souls (1 Corinthians 14:4), as well as observe congregants shouting, singing, dancing, clapping, raising their hands, weeping, and yielding to the Holy Ghost as he works through their mortal bodies to give Jesus due praise and gratitude. It is a great blessing to have the Holy Ghost to help us pray, for as the Bible says, “we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered” (Romans 8:26).
For someone unfamiliar with the movement of the Holy Ghost, Christ Gospel Church services can be surprising, but we encourage all members and visitors to maintain reverence for God’s Spirit by keeping their minds and eyes focused on Jesus and offering Him whatever love and praise they can.
