What We Stand For
As a band, we believe God sent His Son to die for our sins, Christians are supposed to tell people what God did, and music is an avenue through which we as musicians can do just that. What we stand for can be summed up in three scripture passages. The first verse that describes our position is John 14:6 in which Jesus declares,
“…I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
We firmly believe the Bible is the Word of God, and everything in God’s Word is Truth. Therefore, it is clear that Jesus Christ is mankind’s ONLY chance of salvation (…”no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”). Realizing, because of the fall of Adam, people are born with a sinful nature and in need of a Savior, we believe God sent His only begotten Son to the earth to die in our place. God’s gift of Salvation is available to everyone if they believe in Jesus Christ and commit their life to Him. The second verse is Matthew 28:19-20 which states,
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
As Christians, we believe our job is to tell people about Christ and spread the Gospel. Nowhere in the Bible does God tell us to become believers, sit back, and wait to die so we can go to heaven. When the band formed in 2007, each of us were struggling individually with how to tell people not only is Jesus Christ OUR Lord and Savior, but He wants to be EVERYBODY else’s Lord and Savior too. We knew we were supposed to witness to the world, but felt we had no way to do that. Finally, we realized that God had given us an avenue through which we could spread the Gospel, and that avenue was music. It’s no coincidence the longest book in the Bible is a song book, which brings us to the third and final verse. Psalm 100 says,
“Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.”
It is obvious God wants His children to praise him through song, and we believe song is an extremely important part of worship. We love using music to tell others about what Christ has done for us, and what Christ can do for them.
