At Buckingham we believe that the right way to worship God is governed by God Himself (Deut. 12:32); and so we believe that worship should be God-centred, not man-centred, and that our worship should be done in a way that first and foremost pleases Him, not ourselves.
The Bible makes it clear that we are to worship In ‘spirit’ and in ‘truth’ (John 4:23-24). And this guides our worship here at Buckingham.
Our worship is focused on being in reverence and awe of who God is and who we are and how we should approach him in our worship: in the right spirit of being sinners coming into the presence of Holy God.
Our worship is centred around God’s Word (being the truth) and the preaching of it and singing hymns in accordance with that truth.
The Lord’s Day
We also believe that Scripture is equally plain that God has set apart one day in seven as a special day to be kept holy to Him. And so this is why, on the Lord’s Day, or Christian Sabbath, we gather together as God’s people for the corporate worship of Almighty God, spend time considering Him and His works, and rest from worldly employments and recreations which are quite legitimate on the other six days (Exodus 20:8-11; Deut. 5:12-15; Acts 20:7). God has promised to bless His people who correctly observe the Sabbath Day (Isaiah 58:13-14).
Our church hymnbook is Christian Hymns.
Our church Bible is the New King James version.
