Colossians 3:16 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord!
Music is Powerful! Music has enormous power to engage the emotions, and the Bible resounds with praise and thanks to God through music. In the Old Testament music played a number of different roles, including assisting in the memorization of God’s truth and in reminding God’s people of their fallenness and salvation. In the New Testament God’s people gather together to express their praise to him and to build one another up in the faith. A rich variety of music that is in harmony with the ministry of God’s word is a significant part of the life of the church and points towards the role of music in our praise of God in heaven.
Pinecroft Baptist has made a "Music Page" for you to enjoy Christian music right here anytime you want. This is VERY important for ALL of us to grow as Christians. We will continue to change out the music here to give you a variety to listen to. We will have an "Artist Showcase" to highlight a different artist. Keep checking this page each week for the new music! ENJOY!
II currently live in Aberystwyth which is in Wales, UK, with my wife Elaine (who sings on some of the songs) and my 21 month old daughter Beca (who sings, but can't quite hold a tune yet!). We're part of the congregation at St Michael's church and involved in the worship group there. I've been involved in music and worship for over 20 years: starting out on piano in my church when I was 15, through to now leading worship on guitar. I've lived in Scotland and England previously, and it seems that each time I've moved location, God has provided so many opportunities to develop the talents He has given me.
A Note from Richard Jensen
II've been writing songs for several years, with the aim of getting more Biblical content into the songs I write so that they are an encouragement and a way of dwelling on Scripture. God's Word is living and active, so for most of the songs I like to try to let Scripture speak for itself. I've found writing songs in this way really helpful in my own Christian walk, and so the songwriting process is as much for me as for anyone else! But it's been great to hear back from people all over the world that they've been blessed by the songs. I hope that you're blessed by them too.
