Welcome to Substance Worship!
This page is here to provide some information to those who are interested in musical worship, here at Substance. Below are a couple links to some resources for you to check out and possibly get more involved.
Substance Worship exists to reach the un-churched, de-churched, and lost people and inspire them to devote their lives to Christ and His call on their life. To be used by God to draw all people into His presence corporately, to worship God for who He is and what He has done- expressed in and by the things we say and the way we live. Our heart is to worship God no matter what our surroundings are, and pray that others will see true worship and follow.
We are committed to equipping and raising leaders, fulfilling the call on this church to be a sending church, an airport church. We believe that well rounded leaders will always be more effective than well-equipped musicians, which is why we stress that our identity must be in Jesus Christ 100% and not in our instrument. Like we mentioned above, we are called to lead people– not just play an instrument or sing.
Relationships- We believe that Substance Worship is a C not a c! We are a Community (family in Christ) and NOT a clique (group of musicians). We feel very strongly about having healthy relationships with people we can do life with, which means we are to pray and grow together through the core value of four to seven friends and a ministry.
Substance’s heart is for everyone to be used in an area of ministry where they can most effectively utilize their skills for God.
We are the Body of Christ. Everyone has a part to play and no part of the body is more important than the other.
For just as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body – though many – are one body, so too is Christ. For in fact the body is not a single member, but many. If the foot says, “Since I am not a hand, I am not part of the body,” it does not lose its membership in the body because of that. And if the ear says, “Since I am not an eye, I am not part of the body,” it does not lose its membership in the body because of that. If the whole body were an eye, what part would do the hearing? If the whole were an ear, what part would exercise the sense of smell? But as a matter of fact, God has placed each of the members in the body just as he decided.” 1 Corinthians 12:12-17
