“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. Deut 6:4-9

All this gathered up in adoration is the greatest of all expressions of which we are capable.
To inspire hearts towards true spiritual worship in private and corporately, and to offer the highest level of reverence, proficiency and skill in the service of worship.

Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.
