One of our core beliefs at One Life Weekend is that God has prescribed in his Word how he is to be worshiped by the gathered church. We do not believe that our worship gatherings are not to be shaped by our preferences or what we believe will best appeal to the unregenerate. Rather, we believe that the Lord has ordered corporate worship to bring about the most glory for himself and the most good for his people. We believe that the Lord has given prayer, singing, and preaching as ordinary means of grace by which he matures faith in his people and saves those dead in their sins and trespasses.

 

Therefore, our services at One Life Weekend are ordered according to the scriptures. We want to model Biblical church worship because we believe, first and foremost, that this honors the Lord. Second, we desire for One Life Weekend to model faithful corporate worship for everyone in attendance. Third, we believe that it is unhealthy for youth events (retreats, camps, conferences) to present something other than a biblically faithful local church worship service. Therefore, while we recognize churches may have different elements, such a different types of prayer, or may sing more or fewer songs, it is our intent for worship services at One Life Weekend to emulate the worship services in our local churches.
