Music Ministry

Isn't it great that as Christians we get to sing out our testimonies during times of worship? The message translation of the bible. Psalm 144:9 says,

“O God, let me sing a new song to you, let me play it on a twelve-string guitar”

At First Baptist we sing new songs and great old songs of the faith. These songs are prayerfully presented, believing each song will equip God's people to worship Him in spirit and in truth. It does not matter if it is traditional hymns or songs by modern composers, God's hand and Spirit are in our worship. May God be glorified!

“Let everything that has breath praise the Lord”
(Psalm 150:6 ESV)
