Ancient and Contemporary Mongolian Christian Music

A very historical moment occurred in this young and vibrant church, which is located in the capitol city of Ulaanbaator. The song you hear is the debut of an original composition by one of the pastors -- typically their worship incorporates almost entirely western translated music. This is a common experience within emerging churches in locations where few if any original worship songs exist.

Along with the new song, another historical moment is witnessed with the use, for the very first time, of Mongolia's unique cultural dress and dance in the worship of this church. The festive atmosphere is evidence that this, combined with the new indigenously composed song, produced a deepened expression in their corporate worship experience.

For the first time they were able to offer their own gift of worship rather than that which was borrowed from somewhere else.

This is one of the core values and beliefs of Heart Sounds International, that God is best worshipped when the music offered is birthed from the very heart and culture of the people worshipping. It is then that God is most honored and His people are most engaged in expressing their love and devotion.
