Music Ministries

Music has been an important part of religious life in The Salvation Army. Throughout its history, music has symbolized the cheerful religion of Salvationists, providing both the expression of a joyous faith and a form of recreation. Music in The Salvation Army is multi-generational and transcends international boundaries, cultures, and languages.

Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.

- Psalm 150
