E4 Worship - a Ministry of FBC Salado
ENLIGHTEN | ENERGIZE | ENCOURage | engage
E4 Worship is more than a brand or a catchy phrase. It is the heart of what we do. It is our mission and call to serve. It is our purpose and role as musicians and technicians.
Music has been an integral part of church gatherings since the Old Testament. From the fall of the Walls of Jericho to King David’s Psalms to Paul and Silas singing in prison music has played a vital role in the Bible and the early church. Our goal is not just to sing songs with any lyrics. Our songs serve to enlighten and amplify the Word of God, the person of Jesus, and the purpose of the Holy Spirit.
Throughout scripture, music has been used as a rally cry, a gathering call, and a celebration. It is meant to remind us of the God we serve and “spur us on” to good deeds of service. Our goal is to help energize and refresh the spirit through uplifting and, many times, exuberant music that lifts the weary soul to the throne of God.
There is a horizontal element of worship music that connects God’s people in unity. We not only sings songs of praise to God, but also songs or encouragement to each other. Songs that remind us of who God is in our circumstances. Songs that declare the purpose we have as a church and as followers of Christ.
Ultimately, music should point us to engagement with God the father. Scripture says God is enthroned on the praises of his people. It also says that God delights in us when we engage with him with all our hearts, minds, and souls. Our music is only a vehicle that draws us into connection with a Holy God. Our music should direct people’s attention to HIM, not to us or even the music itself.
