We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of His Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made; who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures and ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father. And He will come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, whose kingdom will have no end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets. And we believe in one holy Christian and apostolic Church, we acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins, and we look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
That is to say: The Liturgy isn't one option among many styles of worship. There is a popular phrase among students of the Liturgy: Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi. The Law of Prayer is the Law of Belief. Which means, the way you worship influences what you believe, just as what you believe shapes how you worship.
Worship forms are not neutral. If you worship as a Non-Denomethobapticostal, then you will become a Non-Denomethobapticostal.
We love to be Lutheran in belief and practice. The Reformation did not seek to reject everything that came before, but to reform according to God's Word that which became corrupt. There is a difference between changing the baby's bathwater and throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
Lutheran worship is unique. We do not start with what we can do for God; instead, we start with what God does for us. We are gathered as His church in the Divine Service to receive His gifts of Word & Sacraments. From this action of God to us, we respond with thanksgiving and praise. The Liturgy is the activity of God speaking His Word to us and we speaking His Word back to Him.
