PRAISE & WORSHIP
PRAISE & WORSHIP
Just as the Bible exhorts, we believe in extravagant worship!
We are all made to worship. Be it through an instrument, song or dance, music is a scriptural means of expressing that worship unto God.
Music has always been an integral part of a believers life in the Bible. More than just making melodies for personal enjoyment, music has been used to gather an assembly (Numbers 10:1-18), sound an alarm for battle against the enemy (1 Corinthians 14:8), and herald the arrival of a king (1 Kings 1:34-41), amongst many other uses.
It is our highest privilege as music ministers to serve Jesus Christ with musical talents He gives us. However, human skill is not enough. We seek the anointing of God to minister with the songs we sing and the instruments we play.
We choose to lavish praise unto God with both our lives and our instruments. As we serve God, we desire to give Him glory and usher in His presence.
HOW WE WORSHIP
We raise our hands because 1 Timothy 2:8 says, “I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands.” We clap our hands because Psalm 47:1 says,
“O clap your hands, all ye people.”
We sing and play music because Ephesians 5:19 says to worship
“in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,”
and Psalm 150 says to praise God with musical instruments.
We worship with a joyful noise because Psalm 66:1 says,
“Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands.”
We pray aloud because the early church
“lifted up their voice to God with one accord” in prayer (Acts 4:24).
We dance in the Spirit because Psalm 149:3 says,
“Let them praise his name in the dance.”
We include testimonials, teaching, preaching, and spiritual gifts because 1 Corinthians 14:26 says,
“Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation” (NKJV).
