The Heaven Bound Singers attest to God’s amazing grace in our lives as individuals and this grace is expressed through each song we sing. These songs are testimonies of the saving power of Jesus Christ and the message of the Word through the ministry of music. Our desire is to see the lost won to Christ by loving God, loving one another and presenting the gospel message through the gift of music.
“Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.” -Ephesians 5:18b – 19
