Music Ministry
Heidi Derkson

One of the most beautiful expressions of love is when a child of God worships the Creator in music and song.  Music is a powerful tool that can open the heart.  Here at the Apostolic Way we treasure the joy of praise and worship.  We have been blessed with many talented musicians and singers and everything we do is for the glory of the One who purchased us with His own blood.

Music is an extremely vast subject today and certainly the spirit of this world has tried to capitalize on the industry for personal gain.  Scripture records that Satan was the musician in heaven before his fall so we understand his ability to capture the minds of our young people for sensual purposes.  We maintain, however, that it is possible to have a thriving music ministry, using a variety of styles while balancing old songs with the new.  We also maintain that the message and spirit demonstrated are as important as the notes themselves.  Every musician and singer must be a seeker in prayer before they will be successful as a singer in song.  Unless the heart is saturated with the grace and spirit of God, the song will be empty and do little else than glorify self.

Together in a world that sings largely to celebrate sin, we will celebrate the greatness of our God.  We will lift His name high and sing high praises until He comes.  Then, in heaven we will sing the song of Moses and the Lamb through all eternity!   Revelation 15:3 ~ And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

Psalm 40:3 
And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God:
