Deo Cantamus exists to serve, educate, and promote worship, using quality instrumental and vocal music that glorifies our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We pursue excellence in an effort to worship our God and bring others closer to Him.
Deo Cantamus is an organization of musicians whose purpose is to worship the true and living God through the performance of and instruction in quality vocal and instrumental music.
Because worshipping God is our fundamental intention, this necessarily requires that we be in right relationship with the God we worship. We believe that this is only possible through faith in Jesus Christ. Therefore, we as individuals are followers of Jesus Christ.
We believe that Jesus is the fully divine and fully human Son of God. His death and resurrection is the only means by which people can have forgiveness of their sins and eternal life. We believe that the guilt of our sins was entirely charged against Him on the cross. On the sole condition of trust in Him, God credits Christ's righteousness to us and pronounces us to be righteous for His sake. Therefore we have each personally believed in Jesus as our fully sufficient and exclusive Savior from sin. Further, we have committed ourselves to holy living, in accordance with the character of Jesus Christ and the commands of the New Testament.
Deo Cantamus is not directly attached to any particular church or denomination. We are a group of musicians who believe the gospel message as stated above. We do believe, however, that the new Testament requires us to display an attitude of thoughtful deference toward all those who hold in common with us our commitment both to the gospel and to holy living.
This statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe. For purposes of Deo Cantamus’ faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our Executive Committee is the organization’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
