LWM has a different concept of the Altar service.   While we do appeal for those who  want to give their lives to the Lord in repentance and be filled with HIS precious Holy Ghost. (Acts 2:38) The altar is also open for those who want to respond to the preaching and bury the word deeper into their hearts so it can grow and not be snatched away. The altar is where we draw closer still to God.  You will see many readily respond to the WORD and makes their way to the front. No matter the reason for coming forward somone will  come alongside of you in prayer. We all need the altar of the Lord in our life.‚Äč
