The Music Ministry of First Baptist Church is multi-generational in scope, meaning every age group is included. It is our belief every member of our Body of Believers be afforded the opportunity to participate in the worship of our Lord through music, using the talents our God has given. These talents include singing and playing musical instruments in ensembles and in choirs as well as participating in blended congregational praise. Colossians 3:16 should be our guide: “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
