St. Paul taught the Corinthians that in God's house all things should be done decently and in order (1 Corinthians 14:40) and he wrote to Timothy so that he and his disciples would know how they ought to behave in the household of God, the church of the living God, which he called "the pillar and ground of the truth."
The word "liturgy" literally means “work on behalf of/for the benefit of the people,” and within the Christian Church, and liturgy describes the shape or form of the Church's corporate worship of God. Derived from a Greek word which means "the common work," liturgy is a term that describes all gestures of adoration to God as He draws His elect people into one place for proper worship. In the Old Testament, God ordered and ordained a "liturgy" or specific pattern of worship which we find described in great detail in the books of Exodus and Leviticus. In the New Testament, we find facets of the ancient Old Testament worship as expressed in both synagogue and temple, adjusting them with their fulfillment in Christ.
The Liturgy at THE CHURCH is not something we invent to express our feelings or personal theological positions nor is it a style we adopt to mirror the spirit of the age. Liturgy in THE CHURCH starts with a high view of God, of His Word, His glory, and recognition of the gracious pattern preserved for us in The Western Rite liturgy. In the Liturgy we approach God on earth as the angels and saints do in heaven, which means we are not spectators in worship, but participants. THE CHURCH has a form of worship that grew in solemnity over millennia of faith and deep devotion, while retaining that ancient shape of reverential, "Biblical worship."
The central elements in the Liturgy at THE CHURCH include the singing of Psalms and ancient Christian hymns, the reading of the Old Testament Scriptures, New Testament Epistles, and Gospels. At the CHURCH we also recite the ancient creed, offer corporate prayer, and of course, celebrate Eucharist itself.
“Whenever we enter the church and draw near to the heavenly mysteries, we ought to approach with all humility and fear, both because of the presence of the angelic powers and out of the reverence due to the sacred oblation; for as the Angels are said to have stood by the Lord’s body when it lay in the tomb, so we must believe that they are present in the celebration of the Mysteries of His most sacred Body at the time of consecration.” + St. Bede the Venerable +
