House of Praise Choir (aka The Kingdom Psalmists)

Our Vision

  1. Soul winning
  2. To attract the unchurched to church and ultimately to God
  3. To train and raise up worship leaders who will worship the Lord in spirit and in truth
  4. To bring the people into the very throne of grace through worship.

We are ministers not entertainers

As music ministers, we believe we need to live a life that is in total agreement with the word of God. We also believe that you must be born again to minister effectively; so serious emphasis is placed on our personal / private life. Music is a ministry that will continue till eternity, so our aim is to be a part of that heavenly choir.

We meet regularly to rehearse our songs and pray.

We believe in unity of the Spirit, therefore the need for us all to have good relationship with each other. When we are united as a team we will minister better. Just as it is stated in Psalm 133

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;
As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore."

We believe that we have a duty to cooperate with God each time we minister; to receive the songs from God by going to him in prayers, to ensure God's mind is received for the selection of songs for the ministration. We believe we need to study the bible to be enriched for the ministration.

House of Praise Choir holds some special events like: Praise Night, Worship Night, and Christmas Carols
We also are involved in any church program to lead Praise and Worship and render Special numbers to aid the service.

Kingdom Psalmists Retreat - we do set apart three days in the year (depending on church calendar - could occur more than once) - To fast and pray and seek the face of the Lord as a team

We believe we are there to help the Minister in the word and enrich the service with the intent of bringing the people to the presence of God.

How can I join the House of Praise Choir?

To join the choir you need to be born again, attend audition, complete some forms and meet with the leaders for interview. You will need to attend some rehearsals before starting to minister - there is a probationary period.

Believers Class

The aim of the believers’ class is to educate our members on the foundations of Christian doctrine as espoused by Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).

This class will provide the foundation that is necessary to live a true, vibrant and victorious Christian life. “And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.” Matthew 7:25. It is for everyone who is hungry and thirsty to know God more and desires to grow in the knowledge of God.  Knowing more of the finished work of God will make the Christian walk a more fulfilling experience. John 8:32 said ‘Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free’
