The Brilliance’s acoustic-electric, symphonic-pop songs invite you to step outside yourself; to see the world through the eyes of the other, the stranger, and those you may consider your enemy. The band is comprised of songwriter David Gungor and composer John Arndt, who crafted the new album in collaboration with Biola University Orchestra and Chorus.
This suite, World Keeps Spinning: An Antidote to Modern Anxiety, asks the question, “Is this the end of the world?” So many are asking the question every day, believing it to be the end of the world, each for different reasons and in different ways. But hasn’t every generation asked that question? And how do we engage with others in the midst of these fears and concerns? The World Keeps Spinning Suite invites the listener into these questions, and to listen to the voices of one another in the midst of it.
World Keeps Spinning is a concept album that explores the root causes of modern anxiety and searches for ways to cope in the face of existential dread. Featuring full orchestra and choir, the album has a sprawling, eclectic sound, with wide-ranging sonic influences from Bach and Stravinsky to Jon Brion and The Beatles. The Brilliance take the listener on a beautiful, all-encompassing emotional journey toward the discovery of our need for each other.

Inquirer/New Member Class
Membership is often a natural next step for those who have already attended our church and begun to explore our ministries. Joining a church is not like joining a club. There are no dues or secret handshakes. The only requirement is a profession of belief in Jesus Christ. Whether you are proclaiming this belief for the first time or restating your commitment along with a letter of transfer from a former church, we rejoice with you!
Our Inquirer/New Member Class prepares you for this life-changing proclamation. Our goals for the Inquirer/New Member Class are to increase our awareness and understanding of:
- The central beliefs of the Christian faith
- The Presbyterian Church (USA)
- Westminster Presbyterian Church
The class provides opportunities for:
- Making or deepening commitment to Jesus Christ
- Making friends within the class and within the larger Westminster community
- Making commitment to specific connections with Westminster
New members will be welcomed during worship the following Sunday.
