I will extol You my God and King and bless Your name forever and ever. Everyday I will bless You and praise Your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised, and His greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall commend your works to another and shall declare Your mighty acts.

(Psalm 145: 1-4)

We desire that we would be known by this Psalm. Extol means high praise and we desire to give the Lord high praise as we worship Him multi-generationally in spirit and truth. All our ministries within the worship ministry seeks to do this.

Jesus greatly cares about worship and we should honor Him by being a people who strive to worship our great Savior as He desires, “in spirit and truth.” Our heart’s desire as we live and worship Him together is to glorify God in all we do, letting the Word of Christ dwell in us richly, encouraging one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. What unites us, and our musical styles, is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our corporate worship gathering is led our orchestra, band, praise team and worship choir.
