What is True Worship?

by | Mar 15, 2011 | Old Magazine Articles

The look and sound of worship in churches today is a far cry from what it was in past generations. We have great sound, tech-savvy video directors, lights and well-trained musicians that lead us into worship during our services. So why is there so much discussion about getting back to the heart of worship?

We’ve compiled the thoughts of seasoned and new worship artists at worship.charismamag.com to help answer that. They share why it’s important that everyone, from worship leaders to tone-deaf Christians, discover God’s true intent for worship.
