To achieve our mission, our Worship Team embraces five key values that are the foundation of everything we do.
Core: Scripture defines worship and defines the Church as a worshipping people. At the core, we are worshippers. We strive to understand more deeply and conform ourselves to the true definition of worship (Romans 12:1-2). We commit to being the kind of worshippers the Father seeks. (John 4:23)
Character: Before we are musicians, singers, audio engineers, or technicians, we are Christ-followers. We commit to the pursuit of Christ-likeness.(Ephesians 4:22-24)
Community: We need to function as a team, and that means we need healthy relationships, both within this ministry and the wider church. We commit to true fellowship with one another. (Acts 2:44-46)
Craft: God has blessed us with the privilege and responsibility of leading our church in worship. We commit to do our best and to strive to learn and grow in our craft. (Psalm 33:3)
Culture: Earnest, passionate worship should be the norm in our church. We commit to allow God to use us to create a culture of worship at Gateway. (Psalm 89:15, Colossians 3:16-17)
