In worship God reminds us that we are his own, especially through the celebration and remembrance of our baptism. Our lives and our community are founded on God's Word, which reveals our need of his grace and freely offers that grace. God nourishes us in the Holy Meal and sends us to live as Christ's body in the world. Through worship, the church witnesses to and is drawn into God's own purpose of reconciling the world to himself. Worship is the way God gathers people to witness to and participate in his work of reconciliation.
