Our Goal

The Music Ministry of First Baptist Church has one goal and that is to lift high the name of Jesus! In John 12:32 Jesus said, "And if I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men to myself." Singing for our Savior and seeing many come to know Him is our greatest joy. We believe that God created each person to worship Him. Isaiah 43 assures us that we were created to worship God. Read the words found in verse 21, “The people whom I formed for Myself will declare My praise.” Likewise, 1 Peter 2:9 echoes Isaiah 43 by stating, “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” May each one of us fulfill our purpose given to us by our Creator. Let’s worship Him!

Guiding Principles

Your participation in the Music Ministry makes YOU a Worship Leader: Leadership is influence. We can impress people with our talents and abilities but we influence people only with our passion and heart. Your effectiveness as a worship leader is determined by your love for God, love for people, and love for worship. (Deuteronomy 10:12-13)

God is honored in excellence: God deserves our best because He gave His best through Christ, and everything He does is perfect.  Your participation in the ministry is an offering to God. You offer your best by rehearsing faithfully, being punctual and dependable, supporting the leadership and remaining flexible according to the needs of this ministry. (1 Corinthians 3:10; 10:31)

Participation in the Music Ministry is not a substitute for spiritual growth or serving as God leads in other necessary functions of the Church. Your spiritual growth, fellowship with the church family, demonstration of the fruit of the Spirit and faithful witness will enable you to properly relate and contribute to the movement and ministry of this church. (Philippians 2:12-13; 2 Timothy 2:15)

You are not participating in the Music Ministry because you are good: you have been given the opportunity by God because He is good. His grace has allowed you the joy of representing Him in spite of your imperfections. In 2 Corinthians 4:5, the Apostle Paul said, "For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake."
