No Place In Worship?

(from the EPCEW Book of Church Order)

…8.4.2 Negatively, recognising that the whole counsel of God being either set down in Scripture, or deducible from it, and God’s former ways of revealing his will unto his people being now ceased” (WCF 1:1.6). we accept that:

-There is no place for any supposed prophesying, speaking in tongues or organised miracle workings.
-The purpose of worship is primarily to glorify God, not to entertain the congregation.
-Musical accompaniment, when present, is to aid the singing of praise not to replace it. It should be suitable for the serious, reverential worship of a Holy God.
Dance and mime have no place in worship…
