We Are the Church 2017-01-19T17:02:41+00:00

We Are The Church is a series of songs dedicated to inspiring the kind of worship that leads to a demonstration of Jesus’ way.

We believe people are longing to see evidence of God’s love and presence in everyday life. Mere talk of God and his way has worn thin. A real experience of God’s intriguing and beautiful way, now that’s interesting. The old ways of thinking about church… the bricks, mortar, pews and parking lots aren’t descriptive of the people on the inside who want to shake the world with observable acts of love and sacrifice. We’re talking about the tangible kindness of neighbors, young people advocating for peace in their schools, orphans finding families, the hungry being fed, and countless other ways Jesus is advancing His Kingdom through his followers. We want in on this kind of action and we’re guessing you do too.

The Songs

From creation to the age to come, God is in the business of partnering with people to advance His Kingdom. This song is a missional declaration of the purpose of this recording project: “You have shown us love, and we will pour it out for Your glory, Lord.”
Based in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7), this song aims at articulating the beauty of following the Way of Jesus; making peace, living simply, risking greatly all to see His Kingdom come and His will be done.
Taking the words directly from Paul’s doxology at the end of Romans 11, this song is about right-sizing the wisdom and knowledge of God, so that we would worship Him rightly.
Beautifully describing the four titles for Jesus from Isaiah 9:6-7, this song features the poetry of Joel Usina and Anthony Opliger along with the voices of our church choir.
A compilation of the words of Jesus from the Good News according to Mark, this song draws out major themes of the gospel – other-centered sacrificial love, believing and following instead of being afraid – using Jesus’ own words.
This song, like Mark’s gospel, is full of questions about the identity of Jesus, culminating – also like Mark’s gospel – with the confession of the Centurion after Jesus’ death that “surely this Man was (is) the Son of God.”
