Worship is a weapon. Worship is magnifying the One true God. Worship is a way of living. Worship is Surrender. Worship is active. Worship is a command.
Worship is so many things and here at Grace we aim to live out the full scope of what worship includes, far more than just what we sing on a Sunday morning. But when we do get to sing on a Sunday morning as part of the Church of Jesus Christ, we LOVE it. As our Worship Pastor, I love the opportunity I have to lead our church in songs of worship alongside an incredible team of people. We believe that when the church sings songs of praise and honor to our God collectively, something more than singing happens. In these precious moments, we encounter our Jesus and He begins to change us from the inside out. As we give honor to our magnificent God, His goodness is made known again and His Kingdom is built on this earth. Psalm 96:1-2 (NLT) says, “Sing a new song to the Lord! Let the whole earth sing to the Lord! Sing to the Lord; praise his name. Each day proclaim the good news that he saves.”
One thing that Psalm 96 specifically calls out in a believer is that we sing new songs to the Lord. At Grace we believe that God reveals His heart through music and that includes hymns and those classic golden oldie worship songs we all love, but also through new music and new songs. One of the things that we value as a church is creativity. Some of the songs that we are currently singing include Defender by Rita Springer, Tremble by Mosaic, and Who You Say I Am by Hillsong Worship, but we always love to find new songs of worship. God is always speaking and moving forward. We believe we should do the same with music and are always ready to hear more of the heart of God expressed in new, fresh ways.
More than anything, as a church, we believe that worship is powerful and that God is honored when we bring true, authentic worship to Him.
