Music Ministry

“O God, let me sing a new song to you, let me play it on a twelve-string guitar”
(Psalm 144:9 The Message)

Isn't it great that, as Christians, we can sing out our testimonies in corporate worship? At First Baptist we sing new songs that you've heard on the radio and we sing the great old hymns of the faith. The 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 gyms 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)
