Mission Statement

To reach the lost with a musical message of hope in knowing Jesus Christ (Mt. 10:6)

The "lost" come in all forms. Generally speaking most people think of the rebellious aethiest that denounces God or is at least the person that is leading a totally destructive lifestyle that separates them from God. We certainly pray that those will hear the message in the music....but in Mt 10:6 Jesus commanded the disciples to "gather the lost sheep of Israel"...those that know God but have strayed. That is our target audience.

To encourage believers to be bold in sharing their faith (Mt. 10:32)

We are not street corner evangelist, but strap a guitar on us or give us a microphone and we hope to set an example to other believers that will encourage them to be bold in proclaiming the Gospel in the manner in which God has uniquely wired them.

To "sing a new song, play skillfully and shout for joy" (Psalm 33:3)

The ultimate goal is advancement of the Gospel. The mission is not a record deal, it is not the next CD project or a full tour schedule...those are merely tools to execute the mission, a means to an end. Through a pursuit of excellence, fresh relevant content, and a heart of worship 9th Hour seeks to fulfill the command in Psalm 33:3.
