Many people don’t understand Pentecostal worship or why Pentecostals worship the way that they do. Pentecostal worship is Spirit-filled worship under the direction of the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost. During Pentecostal church services, we lift our voices in praise, we raise our hands in honor and respect, we make a joyful noise unto the Lord. The Bible says God inhabits the praises of his people. The Pentecostals of Saraland love to offer praise and worship unto God Almighty. If you have never had the opportunity to be in a Spirit-filled Pentecostal service before, you will discover that biblical expressions of worship are still practiced today. The following are a some biblical references as to why we conduct our church services as we do:
