Pentecostal worship is as old as the bible. Many examples can be seen throughout scripture where people worshiped with their whole being. Jesus told the woman at the well in John 4:23 'the hour is coming and now is when the true worshipers will worship in spirit and in truth.' He told the disciples in John 14 that He 'was with them now, but that He would be in them.' Another comforter would come. Jesus had been their comforter while on earth but He said that He would send 'another comforter' that would abide with them forever.

So, we worship:

We pray together aloud because in the Bible we read, 'They lifted up their voice to God with one accord.' Acts 4:24

We lift our hands in praise because in the Bible we read, 'Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless the Lord.'  Psalm 134:2

We sing with all our hearts because in the Bible we read, 'Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth...and rejoice, and sing praise.' Psalm 98:4

We play musical instruments because in the Bible we read, 'And all the house of Israel played before the LORD on all manner of instruments.'           2 Samuel 6:5

We clap and shout unto God because in the Bible we read, 'O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.' Psalm 47:1

We dance before the LORD because in the Bible we read, 'Praise Him with the timbrel and dance: praise Him with stringed instruments and organs.' Psalm 150:4

We testify publicly because in the Bible we read, 'I will declare thy name unto my brethren; in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.' Psalm 22:22

We anoint with oil for divine healing because in the Bible we read, 'Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.' James 5:14

We allow the operation of the spiritual gifts because in the Bible we read, 'When ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation.' 1 Corinthians 14:26
