[pullquote_left]It is not the believer’s goal to integrate their art with the faith, rather the art of God’s chosen people must spring from their faith. – Ned Bustard [/pullquote_left] All of us can point to parts of culture we enjoy and other examples that we do not. Sometimes a church culture can make the word “Christian” into an adjective. And maybe you have seen this with really cheesy Christian bumper stickers, Christian music, Christian movies, etc. “Christian” can be a great noun but a horrible adjective. Therefore, at Resonate, we believe artistic expressions of culture shouldn’t be seen as sacred or secular, but rather distinguished by what is good, true, and beautiful or what is not. As a community, we seek to be creative as we model our God the Creator in all areas, including music, art, media, film, and more.
We think Christians should not be “of” culture by blending in and compromising on Biblical truth and message we proclaim. We have also seen far too many Christians who are simply “against” culture and have lost any relevance. Others are so “above” culture that they lose any earthly good. We will strive to be “for” the culture, in order to engage and redeem it.
