Also from the CREC website -
"The Church, for whom Christ died and purchased with His own blood, is the central institution of redemption and regeneration, and through her and her members the kingdom of God marches through history evangelizing the world. We happily admit that politics, education, or any other lobbying efforts will not accomplish redemption of others or the ultimate transformation of society. The primary way this redemption and transformation is accomplished is through corporate worship. The Church, gathered according to the Scriptures and in the power of the Holy Spirit, is trained, motivated, and commissioned so that the culture may be properly engaged and transformed. When the Church is confused about worship, her message about transformation will be muddled. We must begin with God’s priorities. This is why we emphasize the priority of corporate worship and acknowledge that Ezra must precede Nehemiah, which is another way of saying, once worship is in place, we have an acceptable starting point for cultural engagement. From corporate worship, the Church disperses into the world as salt and light..."
