Christian Music

“The main direction of our music is vertical (man to God) with the audience of our music being God Himself….True Christian music has something behind it that the world will never know: the power of the Holy Spirit. Whenever we try to substitute the Holy Spirit’s power with special effects, we may impress a crowd, but in the spiritual realm we have failed miserably.”

Tim Fisher, “Our Greatest Threat” in “Church Music Dynamics” November/December 1995, Sacred Music Services (Greenville, SC: Sacred Music Services), Vol. 5, No. 6, p 1, 3.
