The arts are an expression of our emotions and of our creativity and they have the power to touch people and to change them in ways simple words can not. Many Christians feel that the arts are a thing of the world and that they should not partake in things like dance, music, and theater. However it has long been our dream here at Esperanza to see Christians get back into the arts; we believe that Christians should use their artistic gifts to put positive and Godly messages out into the world.
