PSALMS, HYMNS, AND SPIRITUAL SONGS
The church is called to sing "Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs" (Eph. 5:19, Col. 3:16). Psalms from the Old Testament that were prayed and sung by the people of God for ages, hymns from today and throughout church history that teach sound doctrine with beautiful melodies, and spiritual songs that express affection and devotion to the Lord for what he's done for us in Christ and by his Spirit. This speaks to the content and the heart of worship, but can very well include diverse genres and styles for various cultures.
To check out some of the songs we sing at church, here's a Spotify playlist with almost every song we sing, sort of like a digital Hymnal. You can browse the songs or click play to listen and sing along! We hope that singing these songs on Sunday and at home stirs your affections for Jesus and shapes you to be more like him!
