Rarely does anything stir our hearts and emotion like the gift of music. It is a universal language—uniting joyful hearts in song and uplifting praise. God made us all different intentionally. Why? Because He loves variety. He didn’t make us the same and therefore we should not be expected to love and adore Him in the same way. Music is a universal bridge that allows us to express our love and praise differently. Many forms of praise are mentioned in the Bible such as: singing, shouting, standing in honor, kneeling, dancing, making a joyful noise, testifying, playing musical instruments, and raising hands. Based on the personality God gave you, the best style of praise is the one that most authentically represents your love for God. Worship is a lifestyle, not a genre. We worship God in the way we live our lives. Our praise is simply a way to express our love and gratitude to Him.
Psalm 150 states, "Let everything that has breath praise the Lord." At First Colbert Heights, we allow the opportunity for every person to use the gifts God has given them to corporately praise Him. We understand that our hearts are the focus and concern of God and our hearts reflect the true love we have for Him. Our music is praise to Him and Him alone. In Ephesians 5:9, Scripture tells us that we are to be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in our hearts to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Music Ministry of FBCCH promotes the opportunity to corporately celebrate joy, hope and freedom that is available in Christ. Our desire is to simply praise Him for all that He has done.
