We are ONE WORSHIP.
Ongoing, Never-ending, Everlasting Worship IN HIS PRESENCE.
Living in His Presence is what worship is all about. Senior Pastor Mel Ayres set the pace and example as the primary Worship leader when IN HIS PRESENCE CHURCH was born in 1995. Since that time, the congregation has grown together sharing intimate and powerful times of praise and worship with many receiving salvation, healing, miracles and God’s wisdom to overcome life’s challenges.
As the church has grown, so has the worship team. Multiple gifted musicians, vocalists and writers from many different countries found themselves drawn and assembled together IN HIS PRESENCE with a single purpose; to glorify God through music. As we recognized the hand of God, it became clear we needed to protect what the Lord was building among us. Jesus’ prayer became ours:
The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind— Just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, So they might be one heart and mind with us.
--- John 17:21
“Oneness” was our constant prayer, thus becoming our identity: ONE WORSHIP
In November 2010, ONE WORSHIP (the praise and worship ministry of IN HIS PRESENCE) was launched with the release of the team’s first CD, ONE WORSHIP Vol. 1 including original songs reflecting the Word of God taught and lived out at IHPC and the diversity we represent.
Heavenly worship includes people from every nation, tribe and tongue together in one accord. We are collectively in pursuit of God’s will being done here on earth as it is in heaven, that
...together (we) may [unanimously] with united hearts and one voice, praise and glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 15:6
We are ONE instrument. The instrument only works when the Master is playing it; when all the components are in tune and pliable in His hands. As His breath floods the instrument, it may find its melody through a different voice each week, yet we realize it takes all of us in our God given positions to bring forth His song. This focus eliminates comparison and competition and allows us to celebrate all of the gifts He has given, worshiping together as ONE.
Our prayer is to bring forth music that has not yet been heard on earth, songs that carry the sound of heaven, not only touching but transforming lives locally and abroad, all for the glory of ONE God!
From ONE blood, having ONE heart and mind, we lift up ONE voice to prepare the way of the Lord for His entrance into hearts and lives NOW as well as preparing the way for His return. It is ALL ABOUT HIM!
