“Each one should use whatever gift he has
received to serve others, faithfully
administering God's grace in its various
forms.” 1 Peter 4:10.
Review of literature indicates media affect
socialization because they influence values,
beliefs, attitudes, and behavior; they are
shapers, spreaders, and transformers of
culture. Considering we are a “,” It has also
been documented that adolescents adopt
attitudes that mimic themes common in
media messages and behave in ways that
reflect media content. As with Elisha, when
he said, "Bring me a minstrel," because he
believed the harper's music would be a real
help to him in experiencing God's presence and in
doing God's work. Moreover, he was right. For "it came
to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the
Lord came upon him." We at Resurrection & New
Life Fellowship find the use of this form of ministry to
be both a source of liberation and empowerment,
because no matter how desperate a situation may seem,
we can be inspired to achieving miraculous victories.
We further believe that the use of dancing, puppets,
theater, film, music and visual arts have a tremendous
impact on people. A simple monologue or heartfelt
song can bring about eternal change in a person’s life.
In a world that has become more entertainment and
media driven, the church must find new
methods to deliver the unchanging message
of hope and salvation through Jesus Christ
to a constantly changing world.
