Our Music

 

We take seriously the admonition to sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16).

If you would like to more fully understand our philosophy of ministry, as related to music and singing, the following sermons by Gary Hendrix are commended to you.

THE REGULATIVE PERSPECTIVE OF MUSIC IN THE HOUSE OF GOD

THE REGULATIVE IDEAL OF MUSIC IN THE HOUSE OF GOD

Our primary hymnal is the Trinity Hymnal (rev) 1990 and we have learned numerous psalms and spiritual songs in addition.

Starting January 2017 we will be laboring to identify “our” music in order to establish a body of music that we know and can sing well.  A list of our first 30 songs is provided below.  We will also provide any historical information that would be beneficial to understand the context in which the song was written.
