Generation Church music consists of the following:
- Song lyrics reflect biblical truth
- Song lyrics directly praise God/Jesus/HolySpirit
- Song mention God/Jesus/Holy Spirit
- The song are written for Christians
- The lyrics directly address God, not other people
- The song are performed by mature Christians only
Bible-based lyrics are a blessing. They help us meditate on God’s Law (Psalm 119:48b); dwell on what is true, honorable, and lovely (Philippians 4:8); and even pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). God gave us music to enjoy and to build us up. As Psalm 40:3 says, "He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him."
