Music is an essential part of worship. Usually, music contributes to a significant percentage of a worship service. Worship can only be lively and successful if it incorporates music. There is normally a music ministry in every worship program. However, the best worship service should involve great music. Several qualities determine excellent worship music.
First, great music should contribute to the enhancement of worship. Usually, music enhances the worship experience making the worshippers get a close relationship with God. Every worship is, therefore, a success when music is incorporated. Also, music is itself a proper way of worshipping. Worship music contributes to bringing church members nearer to God as they also participate in the music. It is through music that church members feel they are part of the entire worship service.
Additionally, great music promotes a positive social change. Music tends to bring people from different cultures together. When people worship through music, their cultural differences are broken. Music, therefore, enhances social interrelationships. People in a particular music ministry are consequently united in Christ. That makes music a great tool of worship. People can, therefore, achieve unity in their worship program if they incorporate music. Worship is more genuine and successful when done by united people.
Furthermore, through music, church members are more attracted to serving God. The choir contributes significantly to trapping other members to be nearer to God. Usually, when the choir uses their talent to serve God, they attract more Christians to the same. Dormant church members will, therefore, be drawn more to church and to serving God closely through the choir ministry. Every other church member will be enthusiastic about using their talents to serve God in the best way.
Besides, the music ministry also provides spiritual nourishment and community. The choir is a sign of life in the church. When the church choir is growing, it is a sign of its relevancy and commitment to the church. A good church choir can reach out to church members by participating in church activities and sharing their church experiences. More church members will be drawn to have a close relationship with God by the music ministry. Through the services of the choir, the church grows in a significant way. The music ministry is, therefore, a great contributor to church growth and development.
Finally, the music ministry witnesses church theology. The music ministry develops musical excellence, which is a way of witnessing the theology of the church. Through music, the choir spreads the gospel to the entire multitude of church members. Music is an excellent presentation of the gospel. Church members can successfully get the theology presented through music. The choir, therefore, plays a significant role in reaching out to more church members and brings them closer to God. Through the development of music, the choir uses the theology taught in church. Theology is therefore spread fast and successfully by the music ministry. The music ministry is, therefore, a great contributor to almost every church activity, including trapping more church members to God and spreading the word.
