Why Do We Worship Through Music?
Music is a gift given to us by God. It is a beautiful means to communicate His greatness, beauty and character. Music is also a powerful way to connect with God. We are actually commanded in scripture to worship Him through music. Throughout the Psalms we are commanded to praise Him with instruments and voices. This is not optional.
What is our “style”? (And Why?)
At Watermark we utilize music in the genre of modern worship. On any given weekend you will hear songs written by artists such as; Bethel, Hillsong, Passion and Vertical along with many others. We do not confine ourselves to only specific artists but rather strive to consistently be listening for the next song God wants to hear His people at Watermark sing.
At the Bayview Chapel service the music consists primarily of classic hymns. While there isn't a band, traditional brass, woodwind and string instruments are common in worship at Bayview.
What people can expect during a service?
When you attend a service at Watermark you can be assured that what you are experiencing has been created by a team seeking the Lord and His plan for the day. High quality music, honest, heartfelt and biblically grounded teaching and an overwhelming desire to connect with our Creator and each other are the hallmarks of a Watermark weekend.
When we gather together we are given the gift of being in a safe place where we can express our love and need for a Savior. We encourage everyone to take full advantage of being in this place by being open to what the Holy Spirit wants to do on an individual and corporate level. We encourage everyone to sing regardless of their natural ability because God loves to hear His kids sing.
An important note for everyone:
There is no judgement of ability, your song is a gift you give to God and it belongs to Him alone, we pray that no one ever withholds this gift from Him.
