Philosophy of EMZ Music Ministry:

The definitive criteria for selection of music are the messages that it communicates. If it is instrumental music, we assess it’s music quality, timbre, harmony, amplitude, rhythm, and the propriety of its use in worship. If the music has word associated with it, we value the text being Christ Centric and Trinitarian. We see worship as our response to God’s initiative with us. Praise is not about what we want, need, desire or prefer. Only for the glory of God.

Musicians, soloist, choir, congregation and music appointed by God for worship are not for our entertainment alone or self-glorification.

All text sung must be consistent with scripture and doctrinally sound.

The ministry of music is seen as a great opportunity for evangelism. It is open to both members and friends of our congregation of like faith, not just members of our church. However, since we see ministry as being done for the body of Christ by the Body of Christ, we desire to maximize our own participation before supplementing our efforts with those outside our local fellowship.

The EMZ Music Ministries shall not at anytime minister some place else and neglect home and the church family.

LORD, Fill My Cup, Pt. 2

September 11, 2022 - by Rev. Dr. Brian A. Cash, Pastor EMZBC

Acts 2:17-24 NIV

17 “‘In the last days, God says,
    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
    your young men will see visions,
    your old men will dream dreams.
18 Even on my servants, both men and women,
    I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
    and they will prophesy.
19 I will show wonders in the heavens above
    and signs on the earth below,
    blood and fire and billows of smoke.
20 The sun will be turned to darkness
    and the moon to blood
    before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
21 And everyone who calls
    on the name of the Lord will be saved.’[c]

22 “Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know. 23 This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men,[d] put him to death by nailing him to the cross. 24 But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.
