The voice of the LORD is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders, the LORD thunders over the mighty waters..
(Psalm 29:3 NIV)
The human condition. Our hearts are all troubled waters. Our lives are mighty waters. Deep waters, turbid waters, intricate currents and flows. Mighty waves on top, bone-crushing pressures at the bottom.
The Voice of the Lord is speaking. What is HE saying? How do we, both individually and corporately connect to His Voice? Swimming frantically in our troubled waters, how do we hear that Voice that is always calling, speaking, whispering?
So much of the corporate life of the Church in the 21st century has become about a new noun: ‘worship’.
This website is about the ‘next thing’ for the Church; exploring the verb of Adoration… Adoration of God. Biblically, historically, practically… Adore the Lord!

THE APOSTLES CREED
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
he descended into hell;
the third day he rose again from the dead;
he ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost;
the holy catholic Church;
the communion of saints;
the forgiveness of sins;
the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting. AMEN.
THE NICENE CREED
We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
