Sanctuary Choir

Purpose Statement:

• The CMBC Sanctuary choir exists to assist in leading the congregation in worship through scripturally based traditionally hymns, contemporary and praise songs, and music; and to exemplify Christ in daily living and thereby bring glory to His name.

Biblical Exhortations:

• The Holy Scriptures are clear in teaching that salvation takes priority over service and that ministry and morals go hand in hand. Our worship of the Lord Jesus Christ is vain if our heart is not committed to Him. When the Lord allowed an evil spirit to come upon Saul, He allowed David to minister to Saul. David’s music came from his harp, but David, the one who played the music, was spiritual (Matt 15: 8 – 9; 1Kings 15:5; Psalm 51; Psalm 32).

• Worshipful songs and music can prepare the heart for receiving the Word of God. Uninterrupted time of praise and worship in songs, hymns, spiritual songs, and music can help worshippers to take their focus off themselves and their circumstances, and place it on God and His glory.
