The purpose of this project was to develop an undergraduate course in Seventh-day Adventist worship. Chapter 1 states the purpose, justification, and expectations of the project. Chapter 2 states the origins and development of worship as these are revealed in the Old and New Testaments. Chapter 3 considers worship from Ellen G. White’s perspective. The concerns, issues, and principles of true worship are found in her writings. Chapter 4 deals with contemporary issues in worship.
The first part of this chapter has to do with the literature review and centers in the Pentecostal Movement and its influence on the Christian Church. The second part considers the phenomenon of "celebration churches" in Adventism and how, in recent years, the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America has been challenged to rethink its historical patters of worship. Chapter 5 contains the pedagogical methodology, the course objectives, requirements, and basic course outline. Chapter 6 consists of six classroom presentations (three theoretical and three practical). Chapter 7 consists of conclusions and recommendations reached in this study and in the teaching of the course.
