Music is a powerful tool. It has the power to create moods, change atmospheres, and move people to action. But how does music fit into the local church? Is it a legitimate means of expression in the church? Does God desire for music to be a major part of our corporate worship? We believe He does!
- Music is a means of praise and worship. Psalm 150; Revelation 5:8-10
- Music is a valuable teaching tool. Colossians 3:16
- Music is an evidence of Spirit-filled lives. Ephesians 5:18-19
- Music is a vehicle for Christian service. Psalm 100:1-2
- Music is an effective way to testify and express our faith in Christ. Acts 16:25-30
- Music can be a source of comfort and encouragement. 1 Samuel 16:23
In our worship services you will experience a variety of songs and instruments. All of our songs are carefully chosen, insuring that they are biblically accurate and will edify believers in their faith. Words and phrases that would describe our music are: biblical, worshipful, energetic, spiritual, inspirational, and full of life! It is an exciting and vital element in the worship experience here.
Music is one of the many vehicles used to help us achieve authentic worship as we seek to honor God with all of our heart . Through the Music Ministry everyone is encouraged to reach higher than ever before for genuine communion with God through a life of worship.
While we respect and sing the hymns and spiritual songs that have stood the test of time, we believe the Bible teaches that praise and worship of God should also include new songs.
- “And they sung a new song, saying…for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.” Revelation 5:9
- “Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.” Psalm 149:1
Because our worship service is focused on corporate worship, the emphasis of our Music Ministry is Authentic Worship. Congregational worship, Praise Teams, Worship Band, Solos, and Choir are our main opportunities of worship.
Other events such as “Promise”, Christmas Eve Service, seasonal events, and occasional dramas are other avenues we utilize to share Christ. The goal of our Music Ministry is to glorify God and minister to the spirit of individuals. Our music is not entertainment-driven, but God-centered.
