What does Hessed mean?


     Hessed's purpose is to share Christ with as many people as possible through our singing, our teaching, and our lives.  We want to share the joy that we feel, by being in Christ, with the world.  We are excited to be Christians, and we want to show that excitement in everything we do.  Peter said:

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade--kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith--of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire--may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls."   (I Peter 1: 3-9)

     Our goal is to show our "inexpressible joy" to others through our music, and that by doing so, they might see Christ.
