First Baptist Church engages individuals in worship, discipleship, outreach and missions through music and other artistic expressions. As we praise the Lord, proclaim the Good News of Jesus, and respond to God’s grace, we seek to become a community motivated by the compassion of Christ, serving in God’s Kingdom! Worship is at the center of how we express our identity and are continually formed to be God’s people.
The Scriptures compel us...
to “sing praises to God” and to share together the “psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs” of the church. Through music, we unite our spirits and our minds in acts of worship, celebration, thanksgiving, confession, witness, and proclamation. Whether as a member of one of the choirs, worship teams, or instrumental ensembles, or as a part of the congregation, we are all called to “make a joyful sound to the Lord.”
Our worshiping congregation is our largest and most important “choir.” As we join our hearts and voices in worship each Sunday, we embody the unity of spirit and purpose to which Christ has called us. There are no auditions or forms. To join the congregational “choir,” all you have to do is join heart, mind and voice or signing with the whole congregation!
