What does Sanctification Parade mean?

Sanctification Parade can mean a lot of things. A parade doesn’t always have to be people going around playing music, but it still works because we are doing just that. A parade can also be a group of people going around, doing the same thing for a cause. We are going around, doing something for Jesus Christ. Our purpose with Sanctification Parade is to let others know about God’s love through our music, and to have them become sanctified through His salvation so that they can live the lives God desires them to and be saved. We also want to strengthen the lives of already-existing Christians, and encourage them to join the parade. We want it to be big; people going around, unashamed and out in the open, spreading the love of Jesus Christ among others.
