Singing in church can often get lost in repetitive tradition. Are we taking for granted the importance of singing as one during our church services?

Why Singing Is Important In Church

Songs are not about songs. They are about the Scriptures and the Scriptures are all about Christ.

“We as churches, if we desire God’s truth guarded, we must be aware of the privilege that we have to be able to sing and of the unique tool that songs are. But first and foremost we must begin by making songs a servant to truth. They are not above truth, they are servant of truth.”
