Worship Team
Come and worship the Lord with us. Worship is an active response to GOD in which we, as believers, declare His worth. At Centerpoint, our desire is to exalt, honor, and bless GOD through authentic, biblical worship that relies both upon the heart as well as the mind. We desire to raise up a body of believers that have a passion and love for Jesus Christ that is strongly exhibited in a celebration of worship. To bring glory to the risen Christ is our goal. Our worship is contemporary with a blend of tradition. Our worship team is extremely gifted in the musical arts, yet express their talents with a sense of purpose, reverence, and celebration.
