“True music is one thing that we cannot do without, it creates the spirit-filled atmosphere.” Pastor Kingsley Innocent of Bible Believing Mission, (a.k.a God-of-talk-na-do), Aba, told Showbiz Bits recently. Pastor Kingsley, whose ministry is one of the fastest growing churches in Aba said gospel music is not just a music but as a ministration in songs because it is essential and important as individuals in church cannot do without gospel music.
Singing and giving praises to God is Godly, it is Biblical because God says, if I be lifted up, I will draw all men to myself. When we praise God, He blesses us. Praising and worshipping God is very essential. Any church that doesn’t praise God through music will see little of God’s power and that is why the manifestation of God’s power is made more real through music. There are too many gospel artistes that I love but my favourite is Praise Machine because he is a friend and a brother. He has attended all the conventions held in my church and he is doing well.
He has been a blessing to us through his music. The youthful pastor said what he looks out for in a gospel artiste is that the individual must have a high level of integrity and will amplify the gospel through their music. Gospel musicians should always adopt a lifestyle that is pleasing to God always. Gospel artistes that now sing secular music are like hirelings, they are doing it to feed their belly but those who are called to preach the word of God, no matter what, are still holding on to what they believe.
“ I am looking for a gospel musician, who will not just entertain but minister. I want people to fear the Lord and I believe that one day, this nation will have a leader that will lead like Christ.”
