Worshiping Through The Arts
At Valley Pentecostal Church, One Of The Ways That We Engage In Worship Is Through Artistic Expression. That's Why If You Visit Us On A Sun Morning You May See An Artist Painting During Worship Times As God Speaks To Them With Pictures Or Impresses Upon Them Different Things To Paint.

Isaiah 66:1 ‘The Lord says, “Heaven is My
throne and the Earth is My footstool.
Wherethen is a house you could build for Me?
And where is a place that I may rest?”’
God is happy with his kids! This colourful, happy painting is the beginning of a depiction of two worlds colliding and coexisting. Two worlds operating at the same time. Heaven and Earth. The Kingdom of God and Earth. As much as there’s deceit, pain, and hurt that roam around the Earth, the Kingdom of God is at hand covering the Earth with it’s properties. Prayer and communion with God allows us to access Heaven and bring truth, joy, health, wholeness, peace, direction, whatever our circumstance needs, to Earth. Whatever the world needs, to Earth. The yellow along the top of the hills is glory. His tangible presence and Kingdom glory is all over the Earth, everywhere, taking up all of the space because God takes up all of the space.
Psalm 24:1-2 “The Earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for He founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.”
