About the Music and Worship
It may seem strange for someone to walk in for the first time and see people raising their hands in worship. It may seem strange, to hear us singing the words that we sing. But it, in reality, is no stranger than seeing someone get teary eyed from watching a movie or yelling at the TV during their favorite show. We are emotional beings and we worship whether we like it or not. We were born to worship. Even when we don’t feel like worshiping, we disregard our feelings and do it anyway – because in our hearts we know that God deserves that attention. We are pretty sure God likes to hear our worship just as a father enjoys hearing a child say “Dad, I love you and you’re the best dad ever.” God is just that great and wonderful and worthy of worship. We worship by lifting our hands, by lifting our voices even when we can’t sing, by yelling loud the “hallelujah” or “amen” the same as we would if we were at a football game celebrating the victories of our team. God is great, and he deserves a shout. Though it may seem strange at first, over time people’s different life experiences will cause them to see things differently. So you may find people raising their hands and you others standing quietly by. Both are welcome to worship in their own way. We we encourage worship out of obedience as a physical sacrifice. Besides that type of worship, we believe that our lifestyle worships God as well. How we treat others, how we think, how we give, are all examples of how we worship Him.
