Values and Philosophy

  • We are a church committed to a blended style of music during a Sunday Morning Worship Service (Ranging from acapella to full instrumental). This includes singing a balance of traditional hymns as well as modern worship songs. (Colossians 3:17)
  • By maintaining a blended approach to music we are committing ourselves to embracing one another's differences, maintaining unity and avoiding a selfish mentality when it comes to worship. (Philippians 2:1-5)
  •  We are a church committed to unity in the body of Christ, which includes accepting and embracing the diversity of musical tastes within the congregation as we maintain an attitude of humility, peace, patience, love, grace and support. (Ephesians 4:1-16)
  • Worship will be led with excellence and with an attitude that facilitates worship of God. All instrumental background is to remain secondary, not primary. The instrumental background serves to enhance the dynamics of a song, not to dominate it. Sunday morning music is for worshipful purposes not entertainment purposes, unless communicated as such prior to being presented. (1 Corinthians 14:40)
  • We believe the inclusion of various types of musical styles will enable music from time to time to be relevant to each individual worshipper. (1 Corinthians 9:22)
  • We will include performing arts/drama in services to express an alternative platform to demonstrate God's message.
