New Rising Star Music Ministry




Our purpose is to be an example, through music, to the church body, of true praise and worshippers.  With uplifting songs of praise and worship, we come as an aid to the people of God in entering into, or continuing, a mindset and atmosphere of praise and worship through music.


We come prayerfully to services prepared to exalt the name of the Lord Jesus Christ through singing, dancing, playing of instruments, etc.  God desires that His people be eager to know Him intimately, and experience all of who He is.  We, as a ministry, desire to minister through music, dance, playing of instruments, etc, to God, to the people and to ourselves, and be a vessel, a conduit, for the Holy Spirit to flow and operate in and through.   


The bible tells us that God is seeking a people who will worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:23).  And so, we seek to be such a people.  This requires from us, as musicians, singers, dancers, and all servants of God, personal time, as well as corporate time, spent with God through Word, Prayer, Praise, and Worship.  Word, prayer, praise, and worship are to the spirit what food, water, air, and shelter are to the body, a necessity.  Know now that everything we need can be found in praising, worshipping, praying, and staying in God’s word. 


We believe that through our true acts of praise and worship, an atmosphere is set for the Holy Spirit to move freely throughout the congregation.  And so we come, as a ministry, not to use this opportunity as an entertainment platform for others to admire our abilities, talents, and gifts.  But, to exercise and offer the abilities, talents, and gifts that God has given us, to aid in the worship experience, of the people, to God.  We come to “enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise" (Psalms 100:4).  Our very desire is to offer the Lord our sacrifices of praise and worship.  So, when we all come together collectively as a ministry: be it rehearsals, Sunday and Wednesday services, or other special services, we give God all the praise due Him.  With much excitement, enthusiasm, zeal and anointing, we serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing (Psalms 100:2).  We worship in, “SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH!
