The Worship & Arts Ministry has a primary purpose of glorifying God in our worship experiences and to teach others with our lifestyle that worship goes beyond Sunday service into our everyday lives. This ministry encompasses all forms of worship including vocal, instrumental, dance, and visual.
Mission: Through our dance, and in all we do, we do it for the Glory of God. We vow to teach, encourage, and inspire others to worship God through the use of the movement arts. Rather than just learning the dance, as a dancer, we will listen to the Holy Spirit and move as He instructs. Through participating in this ministry, we seek to bring ourselves closer to God through prayer, Bible study, fellowship, and discipleship. We are not here to entertain, but to minister to others.
Each dance ministry is committed to worshipping and praising the Lord through various visual forms. The Bible tells us that dance was used as a form of praise and worship to the Lord. Our purpose is to help build the Kingdom by inspiring in others a greater relationship with Jesus Christ as we bring to life the heart of God, using words and music, through dance.
