8.2 In addition to this worship, which embraces all of life, God’s people are called to specific acts of pub­lic (Acts 2:42–4720:7) and private (Psalm 119:148Matthew 6:6) worship. These specific acts of worship—including such elements as the preaching of the Word, prayer (1 Timothy 4:132:8), observance of the ordinances (Matthew 28:19–201 Corinthians 11:1823–25), and the singing of psalms, hymns and spiritual songs (Colossians 3:16)—are to be offered through Christ (1 Peter 2:5), in spirit and in truth (John 4:23), and according to the teachings of Scripture rather than in ways de­vised by man (Leviticus 10:1–3Deuteronomy 12:30–31Matthew 15:3).

Article 8.2

This is an extract from Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni‘s Confession of Faith. While our members must affirm the Statement of Belief our elders must, in addition, affirm the Confession of Faith. The document represents: the sound doctrine we teach, a unity between us on key aspects of the Christian faith, sets a clear expectation to our members and represents the leadership’s hopes for the congregation as a whole. This Confession is held by elders of member churches of Sola 5. Sola 5 is an association of God-centred evangelicals in Southern Africa currently with member churches in Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
