“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1).”
Discover how this biblical truth can lead us into worshiping our Creator God.
This video is simply amazing! Like a trip back in time to remind us of the unimaginable beauty of creation. Thank you.
Awesome…like our God!
Great! Praise the Lord! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! And let each of us do whatever we do with excellence as unto the Lord our God and soon coming King!!!
…and then the preacher walks in and kills it. So focused on getting to “his” part of the service that he completely derails the train. All those resources and nobody made the effort to learn the art of the “segue.” How depressing…
There’s no “segue” in church…it’s called flow. And it’s continued momentum without killing it. That was actually good timing and energy! Great job of the worship team “leading” in worship, by worshipping!
Segue, flow, potayto, potahto. Call it what you may, the way the preacher enters at the end of this incredible presentation represents anything but flow.
Does anyone know which church this is and if it is downloadable?
If I’m not mistaken…this was Long Hollow Baptist Church in Hendersonville, TN.
I was really blessed by the opening, the dramatisation of the reading of the creation. Wow! Praise to Him, the Almighty God! The singing, however, and musos, became entertainment. I was drawn to watching them rather than the power of the words they were singing, and the tune was not great, not easy to sing with. Sorry to be nego. I understand their desire and it is good, very good, but we need to get the focus away from the ‘performers’ and back to Him, the One we worship.
Tom – I felt completely differently about that song and the worship team. On one hand, I can see how you would feel that way by watching just the worship team (the way they were videoed); however, watching the worshipers in the room gives me a different perspective. One thing that I loved was seeing so many of the congregation stand to their feet as they began singing “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD GOD Almighty” – with eyes closed and hands raised to the Father in worship. I doubt those worshipers were doing that TO/FOR the worship team. As for the song, at our church that is one of our congregational favorites. I know those things are very subjective, but I love that melody.
Just another humble servant with a differing opinion. Be blessed, my friend.
this is a beautiful video. very creative and informative. It truly inspired me to worship God.
