Our vision is to enable the full, conscious and active participation of the people at Revival Life Church by inspiring them to worship in spirit and in truth.
Worship is our personal and corporate response to God, in spirit and in truth, for Who He is and what He has done. It is expressed by what we say, sing and the way we live. Our Worship Ministry includes singing and playing instruments. We believe that singing praise to God is a command to all (Psalm 66:1-2) and is a powerful way to respond to our God and King.
The message that our music and songs communicate is of utmost importance to us. Whether our music is loud or soft, fast or slow, new or old, with a full band or without, matters little in comparison to the message of the song. It is important to us that the songs accurately reflect the Scriptures. In particular, we hope to express the nature of our God as we respond to the gospel of the Son.
Our Belief About the Ministry of Music God considers music a very high priority in the celebration of Himself (I Chron 15:16-16:36; Eph 5:19-20). We value "making melody to the Lord" with all of our heart. We understand that musicians are ministers appointed by God to invoke, praise, make melody and give thanks to our great God and King. This appointment and calling is for His glory, not for our entertainment (I Chron 16:4-6).
We believe that singing praise to God is not optional; it is commanded to all (1 Chronicles 16:23-35; Psalm 66:1-2). Scripture also says that we can "give thanks," "make a joyful sound," "make melody" and give "praise" to the Lord with musical instruments (Psalm 33:1-3, Psalm 81:1-4, Psalm 98:4-6, Psalm 147:7, Psalm 150). We are compelled by our love for God's Word to ensure that all words, both spoken and sung, are consistent with scripture and are doctrinally sound (Colossians 3:16).
