The Role of Music in the Church
Psalm 100 says to “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord…come before his presence with singing.” This is just one of many scriptures referencing music in the Bible. Music is the most universal language and has historically been used for peace, war, celebration, worship, adoration, and jubilation. Its uses have been for both good and evil.
Music in the church also plays several roles. Songs of thanksgiving, praise, deep worship, victory, and joyful celebration are just some of the examples of how music can go beyond just doing a couple songs to say that you had a “song service”.
At Crossroads Apostolic, music plays an important part in our church and our worship experience. We embrace a wide variety of styles from some of the oldest hymns, to the newest contemporary worship songs by current Christian artists such as Chris Tomlin, Eddie James, Jesus Culture, Indiana Bible College, Mark Condon and much more. The goal of the music department at Crossroads Apostolic Church is to worship God through our music to the best of our abilities and to help create an atmosphere of worship for others.
