Basis-theoretical principles for atmosphere in worship services deduced from 1 Corinthians 11:17-14:40 This article emphasises the central position that the worship service occupies in the life of the believer, but more to the point: the believer as a whole. The atmosphere is therefore vital. This is researched by an exegetical study of 1 Corinthians 1-14. The atmosphere in the worship service should be such that the worshipper meets God with the necessary awe and respect. The service must also create an atmosphere of love, warmth, friendliness and joy. All attenders must be invited and feel welcomed at the service. The atmosphere must further en- courage and create room for everybody to participate and use their specific gifts. If the atmosphere in the worship service is adjusted to what it should (and can!) be, the worship service will come closer to its purpose and will become even more of a meeting of the whole person of the believer with the omnipotent God and with every aspect of the fellow believers and the world.
