Promote the cause of Christ through Christian education and missionary work. "We strive to help all people in the church and community." "Thou shall love thy neighbor as thy love thyself; I am the Lord" "Leviticus 19:18". We believe in lifting up the name of the Lord in song, reaching out to His people, and living our lives in accordance to our ministry purpose of following Christ. Secondly, we are to bring forth the good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ through the ministry of song. We believe that God expects us to minister to His people in harmonies that touch souls and inspire those who may be searching to find the narrow way. We acknowledge that God wants us to be a light and shining example for others to see the benefit in serving a true and living God.
- Biblical -- The Bible is without error and our authority for worship. It contains principles, examples, and directives to inform our concept of worship. Music serves in worship as praise, prayer, and proclamation (Ps. 96; Ps. 51; 1 Chr. 25:1). Although there are distinctions, in these ways the music ministry shares similar roles and goals with the preaching ministry. Music may carry our thanksgiving as well as our lament and cries for mercy (Ps. 95; Ps. 102). It should contain psalms, hymns, and songs with voices and instruments (Eph. 5:19; Col. 3:16-17; Ps. 150).
- God-centered -- God is the focus of our corporate worship. He is the audience. Our minds and hearts should be focused on Him, who is the object and subject of worship (Ps. 22:22; Ps. 100). Our music is offered to him, rather than to each other, and it is for His glory, not for our own. It should also edify, admonish, and teach the body of Christ (1 Cor. 14:26; Col. 3:16). Corporate worship is also a communal activity, so our engaging, singing, and responding greatly affects others.
- Excellent -- Excellence is an attribute of God (Gen. 1:31; Mt. 6:1). We should offer Him the best we are able. Our music is selected by its texts, sing-ability, and intrinsic and extrinsic qualities it offers. Decisions about the quality and type of music offered in worship are determined by Minster of Music who will consider musical, theological, cultural, and other informing aspects when making selections. Excellence should never be a goal in itself, however, and it does not substitute for offering music with the proper spirit.
- Of the Spirit -- Without the work of the Holy Spirit, our efforts are meaningless (John 4:24; 6:63; 1 Cor. 2:13). One can be guilty of worshipping the music one enjoys. It is important to be mindful of the distinction between spiritual truth and musical pleasure. Worship directed anywhere but to God is idolatry.
- In truth -- Truthfulness in worship refers to the actions we take, the attitudes of our hearts and the intentions of our minds. These should align with the biblical teachings on worship (John 4:24). Our musical offerings should be genuine and offered to the best of one's ability. The congregation and leaders should sing songs with conviction-with the mind and the heart. (1 Cor. 14:15)
- Meaningful -- Our musical offerings are intentional and have purpose. The ministers select music and other worship elements that as much as possible fit the worship theme of the morning.
- Of the people -- Our music mostly finds its basis in congregational singing, the most important kind of worship music. Our prayer is for the congregation to be fully engaged in singing, listening, and learning (Ps. 111:1; 149:1
