Some believe that any human or horizontal focus in worship detracts from its God-centeredness and is therefore unbiblical and inappropriate. This idea sounds right, and there is truth in it, but it’s not biblical.

The Scriptures present us with a vertical and horizontal focus in worship. Our vertical focus in worship is on God and our horizontal focus is on others.

In this 6-part series you’ll be equipped to:

      • Distinguish between worship in its broad and narrow sense
      • Affirm the vertical and horizontal dimensions of worship
      • Understand the role of Scripture as the only authority regarding worship practices
      • Learn how to determine the propriety of worship practices not addressed in Scripture
      • Illustrate how worship includes our understanding, affections, and behavior
      • Demonstrate the importance of the means of grace and the elements of worship

This brief video (7:15) will help you understand how both a vertical and horizontal focus in worship is needed to mature spiritually.
