21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming, and is nowhere when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” -John 4:21-24
Far too often, many Christians identify themselves with their denomination rather than with the body of Christ. Fingers are often pointed at one another instead of embracing each other, regardless of their differences. The truth that should unify the body is that Jesus came to die on the cross for our sins and rose from the grave victoriously, defeating the penalty of death. We now have eternal life and are adopted into the kingdom family of God instead of remaining orphans due to our sin.
In Jesus' conversation with the Samaritan woman, he does not mention music as a qualification to worship the Lord. We believe that "worship music" is not the end all be all for worship; rather, it is a vehicle that we use to focus our attention on God and give Him praise with one voice. Music is a form of worship, but spirit and truth worship occurs as one lives to obey God's voice and honor Him in their thoughts, words, and actions. This is practiced well in humility and as we study the Bible!
Our Goals are to...
worship by singing and playing music that glorifies God
gather together in a neutral location
lift up the name of Jesus as one body
tear down the denominational boundaries by loving each other regardless of secondary differences
encourage one another by witnessing the testimony of Jesus
share the love of Jesus with one another
reach the community outside of the four walls of the church
encourage others to live a life that reflects intimacy with the Holy Spirit, manifested by the fruit of the Spirit
