We seek to live and act biblically. While our understanding of God’s truth is yet incomplete and our practice of it is yet imperfect, we are committed to the Word of God as the authoritative foundation of our faith and conduct, including the music ministry.
We honor our unique heritage. We respect the practices of other like-minded churches of our day. We appreciate differences in taste. But these, too, must all submit to the contents, principles, and instructions of God’s Word. In music, as in all other dimensions of church life, the Bible must be the authority.
Our purpose is to minister. . .
- Ministry to the Lord – to glorify God
- Ministry to the Lord’s people – to edify the church
- Ministry to the world – to testify to those who do not know Christ personally
- We are committed to offer:
- Musical excellence
- Ongoing development of our skills
- Hearts that are right toward God
We actively seek to discover the musical gifts which God has placed within the body of Christ at Wake Chapel Church. As God adds His musicians to the church, we are committed to train and disciple those musical gifts. We seek to provide continual release of these musical gifts into active ministry.
