Does God Care About Art?

Does God Care About Art?

Back to the foundational questions artists, creatives, and pastors need to understand. Without this, Christians and the church will fail to engage their culture in a robust way. God cares deeply about the arts, and the evidence is throughout the Bible. Join us to learn the passages and principles that bring clarity on the topic, and confidence to creatives – both creating art in the mainstream and creating art for the Christian community.

    I am so glad to find this page. I have done commercial photography now for over 40 years and a few years ago transitioned to fine art landscape photography only. The connection between creativity and spirituality has been fascinating to me for many years, I see art work as incarnational meaning that I believe that God puts a concept or an image or idea in the heart of one of his creatives. It then becomes our task to “flesh it out” or to bring it to birth. I love being able to interact with other artists at every level from beginning to well established. This is great place.

      Welcome, Nathan!

      Well stated. Indeed, we are made in the Image of God. He put ‘flesh’ on His imagination to create everything, and then put ‘flesh’ on himself in the incarnation. Glad to have you in our community. I hope you signed up for our newsletter as well. We send out weekly devotionals, and opportunities to connect with like-minded creatives.

    Hi Joel! Our pastor recently spoke about the artists in Exodus, and it stirred me to think about this very issue…what is the place for artists in the church/culture today? I’ve been wired to create music and art since I was very young, and I have felt a lack of ways to use it within ministry, worship, etc. As you said, it seems to be unimportant in the sharing and communicating of our faith, rather absent in the function of the church. I’ve been kind of at a loss as to how God wants me to use the gifts/abilities He’s given me to encourage the Body of Christ, and to affect the culture outside of the church. I’ve been asking, seeking knocking in prayer, and He led me to this site! Thank you for sharing these encouraging truths about the importance that our God has placed on the various art forms, and His desire for them to be used for His glory!! I’m trusting the Lord to show me what that looks like, and how to proceed. I’ve felt rather stuck, and in a creative slump…because i don’t know what to do with it! Thanks for reading this, and God bless your work on behalf of believers who want to create!!
