How music fits into worship

Music is just one small facet of the larger, comprehensive worship that you should be giving to God throughout all areas of your life (Ephesians 5:15-21), flowing from the renewed heart and mind that comes from God. As part of our overall worship of God, music is a special tool and blessing that God has provided to humankind in order to aid our fuller and deeper understanding and expression of God's character and glory as they are revealed to us in the Bible. Music is an aid to help us express great scriptural truths as we worship God.

At Grace Bible Church, we aim to use only those songs which are accurately derived from Scripture and which have clear scriptural support. When you're with us at GBC, we want you to be an active participant in worshiping God together with us, rather than merely a spectator while someone else "performs".

Some songs we've used recently at Grace Bible Church
