10. There is nothing we can improve in our worship experiences.

9. There is nothing to repent of in our history as a worshipping community.

5. The worship experiences we have known in our history are fully appropriate to what a holy and perfect God deserves.

4. Our worship communicates effectively with and assist powerfully in evangelizing the lost.

3. Our public and private worship appears to captivate, inspire, and stimulate Christians to greater faith, love, and unity.

2. No one in our fellowship has ever expressed interest in or need for change in our worship practices.
