Worship is an all-day everyday deal. It’s built into our lifestyles. We were created to worship…so we’re always worshiping something.
At the Vineyard, we understand that music is a powerful, God-given way to focus our worship on God and bask in His presence, so its a huge part of what happens when we get together. Through song, our love and adoration is centered on God alone.
God considers music a very high priority in the celebration of Himself (I Chron 15:16-16:36; Eph 5:19-20). We value “making melody to the Lord” with all of our heart. We understand that musicians are ministers appointed by God to invoke praise, make melody and give thanks to our great God and King. This appointment and calling is for His glory, not for our entertainment (I Chron 16:4-6).
We believe that singing praise to God is not optional; it is commanded to all (1 Chronicles 16:23-35; Psalm 66:1-2). Scripture also says that we can “give thanks,” “make a joyful sound,” “make melody” and give “praise” to the Lord with musical instruments (Psalm 33:1-3, Psalm 81:1-4, Psalm 98:4-6, Psalm 147:7, Psalm 150). We are compelled by our love for God’s Word to ensure that all words, both spoken and sung, are consistent with scripture and are doctrinally sound (Colossians 3:16).
