I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises. I will boast only in the Lord; let all who are helpless take heart. Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness; let us exalt his name together. -Psalms 34: 1-3
The Music+Media Ministry of The Gate Church exists to set and establish an atmosphere that is free of distraction and conducive to worship, enabling the Spirit of God to move freely among the congregation, serve as an enhancement to the worship service and prepare the people for the delivery of the Word of God. Music at The Gate Church does not serve as a means of filling gaps in the worship service but is an active, participatory and integral part of our worship gatherings that fulfills our biblical command to sing.
Col. 3:16 - Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts.
Eph. 5:18-19 - Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts.
Ps. 96:1 - Sing a new song to the Lord! Let the whole earth sing to the Lord!
Our primary mission is to magnify and glorify Jesus Christ in everything we do. The mission of the Music+Media Ministry is to facilitate the fulfillment of the overall mission and vision of this church through the delivery of:
