The handling of disputable liturgical music was and is still a debatable issue. The main argument in this research is based on the following assumptions: The glocal missional framework is significant in liturgical music in general and in solving disputable music matters in particular. The disputable liturgical music debate reflects the underlying dichotomy-power struggle between the preferred and marginalised liturgical music throughout the history of the Church up until now. From closer analysis, the dichotomy between the preferred and marginalised worship music and song styles is socio-historically influenced and motivated and not necessarily biblically founded. It is therefore inevitable to uncover the glocal mission framework in handling disputable liturgical music matters. To do so, it will be inevitable: Firstly, to lay a foundation by uncovering the principles from the Bible; Secondly, to give a scope by discussing the parameter incentives; thirdly, to follow some guidelines by reclaiming some biblically based patterns for creational doxology; lastly, but not the least, to learn from perceptions and experiences of other Christians on the matter. All this is done to enhance a missional identity in singing diverse liturgical music in a glocal context and hence for handling disputable liturgical music matters. A summary, conclusion and recommendation were made at the end of the research study.
