At McBIC, we believe we are created to enjoy a relationship with God...to enjoy Him and to be genuine, transparent & intimate in our relationship with Him.
God created the world and mankind with all its uniqueness and differences to reflect the vast attributes and facets of His image. As believers, our final destiny is to be with God, worshipping Him forever with fullness and without any reservation.
We believe it is God's desire to redeem every person who is not in love with Him...to restore what was intended at creation before the effects of sin. Not only does He desire each person to be with Him for eternity; but also, He desires for us to be in relationship with Him during our time on this earth. We believe that worshipping Him can take many forms.
McBIC's worship ministry seeks to develop God-given gifts, talents and abilities of men and women to lead other believers in expressing worship to Jesus Christ. We believe that these expressions of musical, vocal and instrumental worship are a wonderful way to communicate our worship to God both corporately and individually. This belief is founded and rooted in the Bible, is demonstrated in history, is experienced today and it is our final destiny to worship God for eternity!

Although values are usually unseen, they are extremely influential. They affect how we think and consequently, what we do and how we do it. Values and practices are foundational to the shape and growth of our ministry!
Our gathered worship times are intended to be the overflow of lives already lived in worship. The songs we play and the words we sing should be an echo of our attitudes, heart and words expressed throughout the week. Gathered worship and lifestyle worship are both essential.
All team members exercise the two primary functions of leading and worshipping in gathered worship. We lead best through personal worship, authenticity and prayer. Therefore we encourage private worship in order to develop and nurture genuineness & authenticity through our public worship expressions.
God has shaped you uniquely with specific talents and gifts. Find life in being who God made you to be and the journey of growing into it. Bring your whole self – abilities and all - to Him in worship.
Our primary identity rests in being part of a team and supporting it. Individual value comes from what you add to the team, rather than what you accomplish on your own. Look for ways to serve other team members both on the stage and off. Pray for one another and bear each other’s burdens.
We are more concerned about what is in us (who we are), before we are concerned about what comes out of us (what we do) or what others perceive of us (John 4:21-24). Therefore we actively initiate and engage in the process of accountability, prayer and care for the soul.
Music and the arts are a language that cuts across generational, relational and even spiritual divides (believers and non-believers). We will seek ways to exercise these gifts creatively in services and in the local community.
God deserves our very best. We are called to be skillful, laced with quality and excellence for HIS GLORY! Yet, gathered worship is more about meeting with God…the interchange between expressing our love to God and receiving His love in return. Therefore, while we work hard to do things well, presence trumps performance.
