Why do we sing in church?
Here's the answer:
We sing in church to praise and worship God!
God has given each of us an instrument we can use to praise Him—our voice! We sing in church to worship God for who He is and what He has done and continues to do for His people.
Many of the Psalms in the Old Testament were used to sing to God in the temple. Psalm 150:1–2 says, "Praise God in his holy temple. Praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his powerful acts. Praise him because he is greater than anything else." In the New Testament, when believers in Christ gathered, they worshipped to the Lord by singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs (Ephesians 5:19).
Believers in Jesus want to praise the Savior who died for them and rose from the dead to give them His forgiveness and eternal life. It’s exciting to join with other believers to worship God in praise and thanksgiving. God loves to hear our worship! When you are in church, sing with a heart filled with praise and adoration of the true and living God. He will be pleased, and your life will be enriched!
"Sing to him. Sing praise to him. Tell about all of the wonderful things he has done" (1 Chronicles 16:9).
"Worship the LORD with gladness. Come to him with songs of joy" (Psalm 100:2).
