Cornerstone Community Church Mission:
In Everything, we will glorify God, build relationships, and connect people with the person and work of Jesus Christ.
One of the great ways for us to glorify God is through worship. By definition, worship is an expression of reverence and adoration for something. As Christians, we should be expressing our reverence and adoration for God in all that we say, all that we do, and in our attitudes. It is a lifestyle and a habit we develop.
In the context of the Church gathering together in corporate worship, music and art are often used – and for good reason. They are powerful tools of expression. They have an ability to emotionally connect us to things unseen and to allow us a different kind of vision.
As part of the music + production ministry, we seek to glorify God through worship by:
- Striving to be worshippers on and off the stage, inside and outside of the church building.
- Intentionally guiding the church to a better understanding of what it means to worship God through song.
- Creating and sustaining an atmosphere that is vibrant and uplifting, encouraging the response of the congregation.
- Utilizing our gifts to the best of our abilities without becoming a distraction or seeking attention.
