The Bible contains over 400 references to singing and 50 direct commands to sing.
Singing is not an option for the people of God. Singing is a ministry that belongs to all believers, and is one of the essential ministries of the church. The music ministry’s focus is congregational singing and edification of God's people. Congregational singing helps the church express and experience unity in the body of Christ. The focus of our singing should direct our thoughts toward God rather than ourselves. Our singing takes part in deepening our knowledge of biblical truths about God and His word, and assists in equipping the saints for ministry.
