The Declaration narrated by Bishop Mary Alexander
The vision of this ministry is simple: Soul-Winning! Our focus is to transcend the norm of the “community choir” genre, to be more than just a choir, but a ministry. This ministry will not resemble average singing units as in the past. This will be a ministry based on the infallible Word of God, demonstration of the Holy Spirit, and Holy living. All of which operate “exclusively” through the unconditional love of God.
Although singing is what we do, it is not the premier PURPOSE of our coming together. Our purpose is to minister to the lost and to encourage the discouraged believer to believe again. We shall use our musical abilities and gifts as instrumentation to win souls to Christ.
