“God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.” -John 4: 24
Though there are several words in the Bible that we translate as worship, very few of them actually mean singing or are directly related to music at all. At its foundation, biblical worship is about our attitudes and actions toward God and His word.
At Calvary Chapel Newport News, our desire is to express hearts of worship in a corporate setting as a direct overflow of the worship that takes place every moment within an individual’s heart. Those called and gifted to lead worship are especially held to such a standard. Therefore, the Worship Team is a group of Christian singers and musicians who, through music, lead the congregation in exalting God through Jesus Christ by the prompting of the Holy Spirit.
As a culturally diverse church, we seek diversity in our musical selection and style while always placing emphasis on the gospel message during a worship set. This requires that team members are grounded in their faith and versatile in musicality. Both these attributes are ever-growing as we progress as a team.
