As a worship family at Citylight Lincoln, we want to embrace a mission statement that allows us to serve our people well and glorify God in everything we do. In light of this, we’ve adopted a mission statement:
Our mission is to serve our church family by helping them to know and love God more through music, media, and art.
Our aim is to help our church family see and experience the beauty of God through creativity.
Psalm 27 says this:
One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD And to meditate in His temple. – Psalm 27:4
We have the amazing privilege to lead people to taste, see, and behold the beauty of the Lord, that they may know and love Him more. We recognize that God has given us skills and abilities that we might reflect and bear His image and beauty to the world, especially to the people that make up our church family. We seek to serve through three primary means – music, media, and art.
We want beautiful truths to be paired with beautiful melodies. As a team of creatives, we want to sing, write, and lead music in a way that inspires our people to engage in undistracted, authentic worship of God.
We want beautiful truths to be paired with beautiful video, audio, and design. We seek to tell stories through video that point people to the greater story that God is writing – the story of salvation through the Gospel. We want to produce audio that inspires our church family to participate in undistracted worship through song. We want to design and produce media content that allows our people to fully engage with the truths we proclaim, that God may be known and loved more.
We want beautiful truths to be paired with beautiful art. We want the artistic imagery that we create to echo the beauty and skill of our Creator. Whether we’re engaging in digital artistry, or using a paintbrush and palette, the goal remains the same – we seek to draw people’s minds and hearts to the beauty and worth of Jesus.
