Song Writing guidelines

OVERVIEW

Our God is a creative God, and we are made in His image, therefore, we are creative beings. God is calling our church to use our creativity to write new songs unto Him. Psalm 40:3 says, “He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed.” They will put their trust in the Lord. Our hope is that through our songwriting, people will be able to see what God has done, and what he is capable of doing in our lives.
