In all that we do, we exist to bring glory to God. Our foremost value is to be "for the gospel and for the city." This is our duty and mission as His disciples. We serve our city and share the authenticity of the gospel by "speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music from your hearts to the Lord" (Ephesians 5:19)
Born from God's love for us, we in turn choose to love others. We do this by believing and teaching the inerrancy of the scriptures that reveal to us who God is, how He has saved us through His son Jesus Christ, and that we will tell His word through song in waiting for his return.
Because music is such a powerful medium, we honor excellence in our musical worship and lead our congregation in the same manner. We do this by providing instrumentation that supports an atmosphere where the church can sing His praises and honor His word through song.
The music at CITYCHURCH is selected through a gospel filter that tells of the wondrous truths of God's character and the saving grace we have in Jesus. We encourage and build up one another in proclaiming His love and mercy for us, His victory through Jesus over the grave, and the continued mighty works of His hands.
City Church Band is accepting all auditions for volunteer musicians via video submissions. To know a little more about our band volunteers please read this. We are always excited to meet new musicians and we’re looking forward to seeing your videos!
We will review your videos and email you back within 2 weeks with the next steps in the process. If you play multiple instruments and want to audition with them all, we ask that you submit videos for each individually. This includes vocalists who also play instruments.
If you would like to schedule a face to face (live) audition, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We know some of these songs have a certain degree of difficulty to them. We are not expecting you to perform them perfectly. Please don't get discouraged if you can't get everything right. Doing your best will help us to discern your current skill level.
