The mission of the CCF Music Team is to facilitate the praise and worship of God through His Son, Jesus Christ by the power and leading of the Holy Spirit. As God inhabits the praises of His people, we believe that music and worship are of fundamental importance in church life. The spiritual life and growth of the church are enhanced when real praise and worship take place.
The singing of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs is found throughout the Old and New Testaments denoting the importance God places upon them. Worship is one of the ways of communing with God. Worship does not change God, worshippers are changed by worshipping God. We believe it is the function of the Music Team to develop worshippers by helping to create an atmosphere of freedom of worship.
We want to encourage the capacities of individuals for worship thus improving corporate worship. To this end, we try to use a variety of styles of music as well as other media to allow people the freedom to move toward God. It is in His presence and power that the inner self worships in Spirit and Truth.
The outward expression of worship can be seen and heard when this happens. The Music Team at CCF strives for excellence instrumentally and vocally. We believe the church is a place to find, develop, and ultimately give back the gifts with which He has graced us. Members of the Team encourage one another in developing their personal worship and the gifts God gave us.
Throughout the history of CCF, the Music Team has always tried to put Jesus at the forefront. He alone is worthy of worship. Our goal is to glorify God which will lead to worship, evangelism, discipleship, fellowship, healing, repentance, growth, renewal, forgiveness, freedom. And in a word, grace.
Praise the Lord! How good it is to sing praises to Our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise Him. Psalm 147:1 "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16 The Music Team is grateful to God and CCF for a chance to serve the body with the gifts that God has given them.
