TO GOD BE THE GLORY

This is our goal at First Baptist Church, to glorify God alone as we worship Him through praise, proclamation, prayer, scripture, and giving. We believe our model for worship is found in John 4:23-24: Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and they that worship must worship Him in spirit and in truth. 


We believe there are three principles in these passages.

  • Worship is "Theo-centric" - It starts with God; The Father seeks people to worship Him in the way He demands.
  • Worship is subjective - in SPIRIT means that our spirit responds and communicates with the Spirit of God.
  • Worship is objective - in TRUTH means worship must be based totally on scripture, the Word of God

MUSIC IN WORSHIP

We believe that music is just one tool among many that God uses for His people to worship Him. Our model for music in worship is found in Colossians 3:16: Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. 

In this passage we believe there are three important principles:

  • Balance in Worship - psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. All three are related but have different functions
  • Variety in Worship - God loves variety! Let's give our very best to Him using many styles of music.
  • Focus in Worship - Everything we do must be done in the name of Christ with an attitude of gratitude.
