music ministry mission
The mission of the Music Ministry of Cathedral of Faith Baptist Church is to be a spiritual, worshiping, working fellowship of obedient Christian ministers, transforming our community and world by reaching and teaching souls for Christ through our ministry of music by putting love into action.
“put love into action” 1 John 3:18
“Dear little children, let us not love with words or tongue but with action and in truth!” KJV
“My little children let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth!” NKJV
Every choir member should be incorporated/involved in some teaching aspect of ministry outside of Sunday morning worship service, i.e. Sunday School/Bible Study/Transformation Hour.
“thank god for music”
by Julie Ackerman Link
(Read: 2 Chronicles 5:7-14)
When the trumpeters and singers were as one, . . . the glory of the Lord filled the house of God. — 2 Chronicles 5:13-14
Music plays a big part in the Bible. From Genesis to Revelation, God enlists musicians to work on His behalf. He uses music to call people to worship and to send them to war, to soothe ragged emotions and to ignite spiritual passion, to celebrate victories and to mourn losses. Music is an all-occasion, all-inclusive art form. There are followers and leaders, simple songs and complex songs, easy instruments and difficult instruments, melodies and harmonies, fast rhythms and slow rhythms, high notes and low notes.
Music is a wonderful metaphor for the church because everyone participates by doing what he or she does best. We all sing or play different notes at different times, but we all perform the same song. The better we know our parts, and the better we follow the conductor, the more beautiful the music.
One of the best uses for music is praise. When Solomon’s temple was completed, the musicians praised and thanked God. As they did, “The glory of the Lord filled the house of God”
(2 Chron. 5:14).
We thank God for beautiful music, for it’s like a preview of heaven, where the glory of God will dwell forever and where praise for Him will never cease.
Bless the Lord and sing His praises,
Bless the Lord now, O my soul;
Join the song all heaven raises,
Let the anthem loudly roll! —Peterson
Those who praise God on earth will feel at home in heaven.
