The Bible makes it clear that from the very beginning of time God set one day of the week apart as special. In Old Testament times it was known as the Sabbath, or day of rest, and from New Testament times it has been known as the Lord’s Day. Throughout its history this has been the main time in the week when the church as the people of God has met for worship, instruction from his word and for fellowship as his family. God has given us this day to be a unique source of rest and refreshment as we commune with him through his Son and by his Holy Spirit.
