The Music Ministry

“Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” 

(Colossians 3:16, NASB95

Music, along with the preaching of the Word, spreading the gospel, corporate prayer, and the Lord’s Supper, is a means of grace. It is one of the many ways we, as one body, express the worth of our Lord and Savior. It is not the only way the gathered church worships God, but it is shown in Scripture to be important in the life of the church.

The Music Ministry is a ministry of the Word, and consists of individuals who are dedicated to cause of Christ. Musicians, singers, and AV technicians give their time and abilities to leading the body in music that teaches truth, exalts the Lord, and proclaims His gospel. We sing the great hymns of the faith, as well as wonderful songs being written for the church today.

The Music Ministry is open to any member of Fourway with a desire to serve.

Philosophy Worship Ministry


All true worship begins and end with God Himself. Our worship of God is a response to the revelation of His glory as defined by His Word. Acceptable worship is Trinitarian—sought by the Father, made possible by the Son, and directed by the Holy Spirit.

“I will extol You, my God, O King, And I will bless Your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless You, And I will praise Your name forever and ever. Great is the Lord, and highly to be praised, And His greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise Your works to another, And shall declare Your mighty acts.” (Psalm 145:1–4, NASB95)

“Now, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.” (John 17:5, NASB95)


God has revealed Himself to us, by divine revelation, through His Word. Our worship is informed, shaped, and guided by the truth of Scripture. Genuine worship, directed by Scripture, is both cerebral and visceral.

“The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the Lord are true; they are righteous altogether. They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.” (Psalm 19:7–10, NASB95)

“Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.” (John 17:17, NASB95) 


By sound exegesis of Scripture we derive what we know to be true of God. God, being infinite, has revealed to us precisely what He intends us to know about Himself; and, because He is infinite we will spend eternity learning about Him.

“Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.” (Psalm 100:3, NASB95)

“This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” (John 17:3, NASB95) 

Theology of Worship

By applying the truth of Scripture, and a specific application of our theology, we see that God has ordained why and how He is to be worshipped. He has left nothing to our own speculation or devices. Constantly testing ourselves to ensure that our theology remains true to His revealed Word.

“For great is the Lord and greatly to be praised; He is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the Lord made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before Him, Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.” (Psalm 96:4–6, NASB95)

…“Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, that the Son may glorify You, even as You gave Him authority over all flesh, that to all whom You have given Him, He may give eternal life.” (John 17:1–2, NASB95) 


From a sound Theology of Worship we develop our specific methodology of worship, utilizing the resources and the giftedness of the people God has placed in the church. As has been said, we are to READ the Word, PREACH the Word, PRAY the Word, and SING the Word.

“Sing to the Lord a new song; Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, bless His name; Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day. Tell of His glory among the nations, His wonderful deeds among all the peoples.” (Psalm 96:1–3, NASB95)

“As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. “For their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth.” (John 17:18–19, NASB95) 

Worship in Practice

This is worship in practice, directed to our Triune God. As the gathered body of Christ, we offer worship that is honoring to God and edifying to us. Always testing ourselves to remain true to Scripture.

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer.” (Psalm 19:14, NASB95)

“The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.” (John 17:22–23, NASB95)
