Worship Team Core Values

Members of the Worship Team at Faith Bible Church should be:

  • A Christian. You must be a believer in Jesus Christ, and growing in your relationship with Him through prayer, Bible study, and personal worship. You should know enough of God’s Word to discern whether a song’s lyrics are theologically sound. Your contagious love and enthusiasm for God should provoke others to worship Him as well.

 

  • Committed to the Vision and Mission of Faith Bible Church. Your commitment should be demonstrated through church membership via the 101 class. You also demonstrate commitment by submitting to church leadership and cooperating with the Worship Director. Before he fell, Lucifer was a worship leader, and nothing is more dangerous than being puffed up with pride (Ezekiel 28:11-17). Also pray regularly for and with the other Worship Team members, as well as for the Pastor and services.

 

  • Consistent in attending worship services and Worship Team practices. Ifyou cannot make practice or Worship Team on Sundays, notify the Worship Director in advance. Those who consistently miss practices will not be allowed to participate in the music on Sundays. Otherwise, be on time as well as in tune!

 

  • Competent in musical ability and taleny and talent. David appointed men “for the music of the temple of the LORD, with cymbals, lyres, and harps, for the ministry at the house of God…trained and skilled in music for the LORD” (1 Chronicles 25:6). Practice on a regular basis; take lessons if you can. As Ron Kenoly says, “Poor musical quality is a distraction and hinders people from worshiping.”

 

  • People whose talk and worship on Sundays reflects their Character. By participating in the Worship Team, you are inviting the congregation to worship the Lord with you. Your walk should match your talk. God considers your character and relationship to Him extremely important. Character also means working together with your fellow musicians and helping them develop their talents, as well as cooperating with members of the Audio/Visual (AV) Team.
