Music is a pathway.
Music is a pathway, an open door, a vehicle for words. It is a universal language, and can be used to worship God.
The first reference of musical worship in the Bible is found in Exodus 15. Here, Moses and the Israelites have just walked through the parted Red Sea, and in response to God's deliverance, they praise him with song.
We believe Christian worship should have a mind-focused approach, then flowing from the knowledge of God, an emotional and action-based response. If Christians were to solely worship God with their minds, or solely worship God with their emotions, both would be unhealthy. A balance is necessary, and an action is required. If we don't put any of this into action, we are, in the words of Paul, "a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal" (1 Corinthians 13:1).
We believe the Bible is fundamental to musical worship, the place where we learn the truth about God. In response to the truth of God, we overflow with worship, praise and thanksgiving.
The wonder of grace
The heart of The Music Project is to create music that presents the wonder of grace. Often we find ourselves becoming numb to the true meaning of grace, or we read it or sing about it without much thought at all.
God has graciously given us life at the expense of His only Son. The wonder of grace is the playing field for our music, as we search deep into the sacrifice, mission, and love of God. We could spend our entire lives writing about grace, and never fully grasp its magnificence.
