Who we are:

Fountain City Music is a community of worship leaders, songwriters and musicians who are devoted to living out a life of worship. Our mission is to capture and share the creative heartbeat of that life together. Having seen the effect of God's life-changing presence in our church community, our desire is to empower God’s Church to experience that same love, depth and transformation in worship.  


Our Team:

What we Believe

Fountain City Music stands firmly in the center of historical, orthodox Christian teaching. Out of loyalty to Christ and the gospel (good news) we have come to a number of convictions concerning the clear teaching of the Bible. At the same time we have not included in our statement of faith much that can be legitimately debated by orthodox, sincere Christians. We do have boundaries, but our boundaries are broad and inclusive. On the spectrum of Christian churches:

  • we are orthodox
  • we are evangelical
  • we are empowered evangelicals
