Worship at Lexington Avenue Baptist Church can be described as blended, combining traditional, classical, and contemporary elements. The purpose of worship is for God's people to offer praise and thanksgiving to our loving God, through prayers, reading of scripture, music, offering our gifts, preaching, communion, and other acts of devotion.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

What is Worship?

Central to the life of the church is the activity of worship. Worship is the gathering of God's people to give God glory, honor, and praise. Worship always has as its focus God. We often think about an audience when we think of worship., perhaps because we have what in most places would be considered a stage for performance. But in the context of worship there is only one in the audience, and that one is God. We, the people of God, are the participants of worship, gathering to give ourselves to God (From God's Own People: Bible Studies and Devotionals from our Core Values).
