We the Springfield Gardens Church of the Nazarene's Dance Ministry dancers use our gift of dance to share the gospel or the good news of Jesus Christ to the lost and to encourage, comfort, and edify the saints in the faith. Praise Dance is a form of dance that glorifies God by communicating the divine message of the good news of Jesus Christ. This Praise Dance is a unique and God ascribed dance (Ps. 150:3-5). This means that God has ordained the dance to be a physical expression of our acknowledgement of Him (Ps. 150:2; Col. 1:16) and our relationship with Him in joy and gladness (Ps. 22:3; Ps. 30:11; Zeph. 3:17).
Our Mission and Vision is to, "be able to lead the people into God's presence through praise and worship in Dance and through sacred movement usher in the presence of the Holy spirit that will set an atmosphere of receptiveness prior to the word of the Lord coming forth".
Our priority as a Dance ministry is to Lord Jesus Christ, our church - Springfield Gardens Church of the Nazarene, each other and then the public ministry of dance and view our pieces as worship and not as a performance and therefore we present a more creative yet serious reverant and joyful dance. Prayer and scriptures keeps our hearts focused on Christ.
We see ourselves as Ministers who through dance:
Celebrate the life of Christ;
demonstrate heartfelt expression of worship, prayer and praise;
share our God-given gifts of worship and praise for the honor and glory of our Lord and Savour Jesus Christ
Minister the word of God to those who otherwise could not be ministered to.
