Music Ministries Opportunities
As a member of First Baptist, you’ll want to be ministered to. We hope you’ll also want to find a way to use the gifts, talents and abilities God has blessed you with to minister to others. As you seek your place of ministry here, please accept our invitation to consider becoming involved in ministry through music.
Our desire is to use music as a tool to exalt our Lord, to encourage our church family, and to evangelize those who have not experienced a relationship with Jesus Christ. The idea that is central in each of those purposes is that we help the church experience the presence and power of God every time we meet for corporate worship.
It is our belief that music ministry offers one of the most exciting places of all to get involved in the life of First Baptist. When asked which of the commands was the greatest, Jesus replied, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”(Matt. 23:37 NIV) Music provides an avenue for each of us to worship – and to lead others to experience the true joy of meaningful worship.
