Our job as Christian musicians in the New York Staff Band is to unashamedly proclaim the saving power and grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. That power, manifested in creation, displayed in the resurrection of Jesus, and proclaimed through every life that has been changed by the Holy Spirit, is available to us as believers.
In Isaiah 40, God gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. In Acts 1:8, it is promised that you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses…to the ends of the earth. In Ephesians, Paul says that God, by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think.
In other words, there is an extraordinary power available to believers through the Holy Spirit, a power that can accomplish far more than we can imagine. We have power to make a difference in the world. We have power to reach out and deliver hope. That is what we, as the NYSB, seek to do through all of our efforts.
Our hope is that this recording will give you a glimpse of what we believe as individuals and as a collective group. What follows on this disc are new compositions delivering the Christian message in fresh and exciting ways. Each work is described by the composers themselves in the CD notes. This recording also features the NYSB Composition Contest winning work, Fearless, by Andrew Wainwright.
It is our prayer that if you are searching today, you will find hope, love, and power through Jesus Christ, the one whose stores of love and power are endless.
