The history of The Apostolic Faith Church cannot be complete without mentioning the blessings music plays in the services of the church. Music has always been a special part of our organisation and one of the major ways of communicating the Gospel to people. Many people bear testimonies that music was the major tool that drew them to the Lord and the altar of prayer where the Lord met them. Some came to church out of curiosity to listen to soul-inspiring music and the Lord met them. In most of the evangelistic outreach, singing and playing of musical instruments usually form a major part of the services.
Our congregation is blessed to have many dedicated musicians who sing and play for our services and special events. We love seeing God’s people develop their musical talents to be used for God’s work and glory.
Apostolic Faith Church choir and orchestra sing and play hymns, choruses and classical music by old Christian hymn writers such as Handel, Mozart, Bach, Schubert, etc. The church has a choir and orchestra that perform in nearly every church service. They organise music concerts during the Easter and Christmas where dignitaries and government functionaries are invited to the church. They also do this during the annual Camp meeting which usually takes place in the last week of July.
Dedicated teachers also help young children in organising Children Programs that are held several times during the year.
We encourage our young people to join our junior and youth orchestras and choirs and enjoy hearing from them on a regularly.
Finally, we come into the House of the Lord to enjoy music because Scripture says: “Praise ye the LORD. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.” (Psalm 149:1) “Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high-sounding cymbals. Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.” (Psalm 150:1-6)
