Authentic Worship Quote by Herbert Bateman IV

“…authentic worship is not a commodity; it is not a preoccupation with luring people into our service; and it is not a preoccupation with satisfying or appeasing generational likes and dislikes. Authentic worship is first and foremost about God.” – Herb Bateman
