Worship in Music

music

Philosophy of Music Ministry:

We believe worship is a part of our daily walk with the Lord. Worship starts at home with our time with the Lord, in our families and in our work situations in good or bad, happy or sad occasions. As a church, we worship Christ through many actions. Worship is definitely not only about the music. We worship in giving, teaching, preaching, service, prayer and music.

Praise and worship during services are therefore a collective expression of our love and thanksgiving for what we already experienced during the week.

One aspect of our worship as a church is to rejoice in Christ by way of praising, singing and making music. The principles is found in Psalm 100:

  • Praise is joyful: Joyful noise, serve with gladness, Sings before His presence.
  • Praise is intelligent: Shows knowledge of God, Doctrinally correct but not only head knowledge- It is about the heart.
  • Praise is thankful: Praise with thankfulness, Gives all.
  • Praise admires God’s character: We serve a pleasant God, mercy, faithfulness and truth.

Our music teams are committed to leading the congregation in songs of praise and songs of worship. We try to follow a balanced approach and include songs of praise, psalms, old songs, new songs and to cater for young and old. We are serious about the words we sing and every worship session is build around a theme, focusing on Christ and our Father in Heaven.

We are blessed in that we have two music teams lead by Willie Oosthuizen and Harry Vernout.

Statement of Faith

“but we preach Christ crucified,(1 Cor 1:23)”

This is an abbreviated statement of faith.

Our statement of faith.

  1. We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, sufficient and authoritative for all matters of faith, life, and godliness.
  2. We believe there is one God, eternally existing in three distinct persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe Jesus Christ is fully man and fully God, lived a perfect life, died a substitutionary death on the cross for the sins of the world, was buried and after three days rose from the dead, conquering death, and is now seated at the right hand of God.
  4. We believe all men are sinners, falling short of the glory of God, and are in need of salvation from sin and its consequences.
  5. We believe that salvation is by God’s grace, mercy, and faith alone, through the preaching of the gospel, repentance, and the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit.
  6. We believe every believer is indwelt by the Holy Spirit and is able and expected to walk in the newness of the Spirit by obeying God and growing in Christlikeness.
  7. We believe that salvation includes regeneration which produces increasing obedience and transformation into the image of Christ.
  8. We believe in the future resurrection of those who have died, the saved to eternal life and the unsaved to eternal punishment.
  9. We believe in the universal church whereby all true believers are united through faith in Christ according to the truth of God’s Word.
  10. We believe in the second bodily coming of Jesus Christ to set up a literal kingdom on earth which will last one thousand years and will be followed by the eternal state and the new heavens and earth.
