MUSIC MINISTRY OF FAITH PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
Colossians 3:14-17; II Chronicles 5:11-14
Music is a gift from God for all. God has given this gift to His entire Church. This gift is used to express ourselves to God and for God to express Himself to us.
God has called particular individuals into music ministry. (2 Timothy 1:6) God has given these individuals an ability and desire to use this gift as an expression of faith and service within the congregation. It is the desire of this ministry to give these individuals the opportunity to share with others that which God has given them.
The mission and purpose of the Music Ministry at Faith Presbyterian Church is to glorify God through music. We desire to help others reach out to God and to come into His presence in such a way as to “come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in the time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16) We strive to lead others into God’s divine presence so that, through praise and worship, each person may experience the miracle of God’s love, acceptance, election, and salvation.
Since we believe this talent is a gift from God, we desire to be good stewards of the gift and use it to glorify God. We believe we should develop our talents and offer them back to God. As we strive to serve our Lord, we do so with excellence and thanksgiving. We desire to give God our best at all times.
The message and content of each musical offering is very important to us. We believe, as God’s Word is expressed through this ministry, it is very important to make sure the content is both scripturally sound and fully understandable to all. The message and content is placed before the musicality of the piece.
God uses music to:
- help individuals express praise, thanksgiving, petition, and confession
- communicate the Good News of Jesus Christ
- help unite individuals in fellowship and corporate worship
- help individuals reflect and meditate during personal times of devotion
- enhance biblical and theological truths.
