The faith for the Church is the "Word of God", which it views as being 'contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament'.
Worship centred on the singing of psalms and paraphrases, but for generations these have been supplemented with Christian music of all types. A typical service lasts about an hour, with a 15-minute sermon near the end. Worship is the responsibility of the minister, and the style of worship can vary and be quite experimental. Which is to the good of the church.
The Church recognises two sacraments: Baptism and Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper). The Church baptises both believing adults and the children of Christian families. Communion in the Church of Scotland today is open to Christians of whatever denomination, without precondition. Communion services are taken fairly seriously in the Church.
