12.1.4 Further development of Christian divine service

Over the course of the centuries, Christian divine service has been celebrated in various forms. Whereas the emphasis was originally on the liturgy, divine service emphasising the sermon developed later on through the Reformation and within Protestantism. Divine service in the Catholic Apostolic Church was also characterised by a highly defined liturgy. The sequence of today's New Apostolic divine service adheres more to the traditions of reformed divine services.
