The Christian Jazz Artists Network
celebrates and promotes the diversity and infinite variety of jazz music! We
believe that jazz is a gift from the Creator to be enjoyed and
The Creator loves diversity and so do we! Jazz music, with its roots
coming from spirituals, church, and the blues, has birthed a myriad of
musical styles. Therefore we do not promote one style of jazz only. Neither
do we discriminate on this basis either in any way. Instead, we celebrate
and promote jazz in it's many forms, encouraging an open heart, open mind,
and open attitude of acceptance and appreciation for the creativity and
infinite musical ideas of others!
The Christian Jazz
Artists Network is interdenominational, and
acceptance of one another,
regardless of what race we are, or what church we attend is of utmost
importance. We also encourage acceptance of others who may not share our
faith or theological persuasions. Jesus taught all His followers
to, "love your
neighbor as yourself" and that includes accepting others as equals. After
all God loves everyone and we are all created in His image - not just
We are exhorted in the
Bible to "Accept one another as Christ has accepted you, to the glory of
God". (Romans 15:7)
A Christian jazz artist is simply a Christian who
plays, writes, arranges, and records
jazz to the glory of God!
Whether at a jazz worship service, in
a church or concert setting, or even
in a club or studio, a Christian jazz
artist plays his/her music to the
glory of God and delights in doing so!
In this way, the Christian jazz artist
can celebrate his/her musical gifts
and offer them up with thanksgiving
and joy, while sharing joy, jazz, and
faith with others! Notice in the
definition above it states that the
Christian jazz artist plays his/her
music to the glory of God.
Moreover, the Bible says "Whatever you
do, do all to the glory of God" (I Cor.
