Understanding the purposes behind "Praise" and "Worship" can bring a renewed meaning of honoring the Lord. Praise is the acknowledgment of all that God has done for us and it is the act of showing appreciation and thanksgiving for His works on our behalf (Psalm 18:3). Worship, is the acknowledgment of who God is. Worship gets to the root of who we are and we must be willing to humble ourselves before God and adore who He is rather than what He has done for us (John 4:23)
The purpose and goal of Awaken Worship is not to put on the best musical performance, but rather to create an atmosphere that will usher each person into the throne room of Christ. Our worship experience consists of a full band and contemporary worship. Hymns are also in our song rotation, just with a contemporary beat.
