R. C. Sproul has said: “How in the world can we worship God in a way that is exciting and passionate and moving if we do not know anything about him? How can the heart really respond to that which it does not know? The more we understand the revelation God has given us about himself, the more we ought to be moved to worship and praise him in response.”
In other words, theology (truth about God) should always lead to doxology (adoration of God). And without theology there can be no doxology. At Capitol City, worship is our response to what we know and believe about God and all that he has done for us through Jesus and the gospel.
Our Worship and Celebration Arts Ministry exists to:
1. Glorify God.
2. Exalt the name of Jesus.
3. Plan and facilitate vital, fresh worship services that center on the gospel.
4. Speak the musical languages of many cultures and different generations, reflecting the varied tapestry of the throne room of God.
5. Raise up a people of praise at Capitol City by being a fully-invested, Spirit-anointed, gospel-centered team of “lead worshippers” used by God.
6. Celebrate the gospel through seasonal outreach productions for the glory of God.
In John 4:23, Jesus says, “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.” While entertainment is a wonderful component of our seasonal productions, it is not our ultimate goal. We desire first and foremost to present art that points people to Jesus and the gospel. This is what makes our efforts different from other community or regional theatre companies.
In 1 Timothy 2:3-4, the apostle Paul says, “God our Savior... desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” We are actors, dancers, artists, musicians, story-tellers, videographers, and audio/video/lighting technicians who passionately love God and desire to use the gifts He has given us for His glory and honor.
