Whether it is music, drama, or visual, God invites and enables us to participate in the arts so that we may glorify Him. May God grant that we are able to love Him more fully, share Him more freely, and serve Him more joyfully through the music ministry here at EBIC.
Leading Worship through Song
We understand corporate worship as a vital part of the Kingdom of God, and music provides a way through which all believers in the community can actively participate. Our goal as leaders in worship music is to facilitate worship in such a way that the congregation can fully participate in active conversation with God.
We believe the arts are a powerful, meaningful, and necessary expression within Christ's Kingdom. God, the Master Artist, displays His artistry in all His creation. Made in God's image, we bear some of our Creator's artistry, both to help us interpret and understand the world that He made and communicate with Him. So whether it is visual, aural, or even olfactory, God invites and enables us to enjoy Him with all of our senses so that His glory and Kingdom may be more fully revealed.
Training musicians for the Kingdom
In addition to leading worship, E-town BIC music ministries makes it a priority to train people (especially young people) in music. When kids are encouraged in their singing and instrumental skills, the more comfortable they become and the less self-conscious they are about using music to praise God.
