The music ministry exists to provide the opportunity for the body of Christ to corporately worship the Lord, and to prepare our hearts for the preaching of God’s Word.
Our worship must be God centered and Christ exalting. We cling to Christ as we boldly approach the throne of grace, proclaiming the Excellencies of Him who has
called us out of darkness into His marvelous light. We strive to lead the musical worship with diligence and excellence focusing our own hearts on Him because
He is worthy of our worship and our best. Because of this, music will not be performance oriented or self-aggrandizing (Gal. 6:14).
To this end, the music we sing is rich in theology spanning a variety of musical styles. The most important feature of a song is the lyrics. A song is not judged by how long ago it was written, but rather on whether it is doctrinally sound and exalts The Father, Christ, and the Holy Spirit. The lyrics must be biblically accurate and rich in doctrine and theology, (Col. 3:16). The words should be understandable, honor the name of God, focus on his sovereignty, righteousness, power, mercy, judgment, love and providential care. The music itself must be exalting as well. The melody should be applicable, singable and enjoyable.
The melody should lead us to worship and not be a distraction.
Style of music will vary from traditional hymns to modern praise songs. We recognize that there are different preferences and styles.
We employ a variety of these in our corporate worship seeking to defer to one another in love.
We are not limited by instrument choices. Various instruments are utilized in the historical biblical narrative to worship the Lord (2 Chron. 5:13). We will use instruments according to the giftedness of the flock. Christ must always be our focus and is the object of our worship.
