Our Philosophy

Our goal as a ministry is to lead authentic worship, model passionate spirituality and support transformational teaching through creative and artistic media. While artistic and musical excellence is the goal, we recognize that worship is not just a style of music, nor is it relegated to Sundays. Worship is the offering of the totality of our life in adoration and service to God. We aspire to be a team that lives what we sing.

What is Worship?

Worship is like a conversation with God.  Imagine if a friend spoke to you, and you just stared at them with no response!  Every good conversation involves dialog between at least two people.  Every worship experience involves a give and take between us and God.  He speaks to us about who he is and what he has done.  We respond by the way we live our lives.

Luke 5:16
“But Jesus Himself would often slip away to the wilderness and pray.”
Psalm 109:30
“With my mouth I will give thanks abundantly to the Lord; And in the midst of many I will praise Him.”

Biblical forms of worship should be sought out and lived out. In everyday life these postures of worship should be used when we recognize His goodness, feel the worth of it and ascribe to Him praise.

Biblical Forms of Worship:

  • Standing — They will stand in awe of the God of Israel. Isaiah 29:23.
  • Singing — I will be glad and exalt in You; I will sing praise to Your name, 0 Most High. Psalm 9:2.
  • Sitting — Then David the king went in and sat before the Lord, and he said, “Who am I, 0 Lord God…” 2 Samuel 7:18.
  • Clapping — O clap your hands, all peoples; shout to God with the voice of joy. Psalm 47:1.
  • Bowing — Moses made haste to bow low toward the earth and worship. Exodus 34:8.
  • Praying — In the morning, 0 Lord, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch. Psalm 5:3.
  • Dancing — Let them praise His name with dancing. Psalm 149:3

And the list goes on… just like the outpouring of response at our favorite concert or sporting event, we should feel excited to enter into conversations with God.

Why We Sing

If you think about it, a big group of people singing together can be a little odd at times. It really is. Other than a baseball game, birthday parties or New Year’s Eve, people don’t usually get together and sing. So why do we sing every Sunday at church? For starters, it is a part of our faith history. We come from a long line of people who sang to and about God. From King David and the psalmists to Martin Luther and U2, men and women have often expressed their faith in song, be it in painful expression or through excited praise. The power of music is undeniable. It moves us in unseen ways. It seems to tap into a deeper and more honest place of expression, more than words alone ever could.

Psalm 63:2–4
I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.  I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
