Helping Believers Worship In Spirit And in Truth

At the First Baptist Church the goal of our Worship Ministry is to lead you into the presence of the Lord during our Sunday services with music and singing so that you can worship the Lord in spirit and in truth (John 4:23-24).  Our music is a blend of both modern worship songs and traditional hymns.  Our praise and worship team is all volunteer and we welcome those would like to sing or play an instrument as part of our service.  We also welcome visiting guest worship artists and bands who would like to provide the worship music during services or provide special music during the offering.

What is Worship?

Worship is about ascribing to God His worth (1 Chronicles 16:27-29; 2 Kings 17:36). Worship is not about us, worship is about God.
  • In order to worship, people must see God. A study of “worship” throughout the Bible will confront you with a powerful truth. Praise or worship occurs as a response to who God is. For example, God is king; we must worship (Psalm 22:27). God made us; we must worship (Psalm 95:6). God is holy; we must worship (Psalm 96:9). God chose us and justified us (Romans chs. 1-11); we must worship (Romans 12:1). God is holy and righteous; we must worship (Revelation 15:4). Worship is a response to who God is. Therefore, true worship is about considering God. We “worship with reverence and awe,” because of the character and person of God (Hebrews 12:28). God has revealed Himself in Scripture. Therefore, meditation upon Scripture should be a major part of our worship. God has commanded that we pray without ceasing to Him. Prayer is a means of ascribing to God His worth. Therefore, reverent and meaningful prayer should be part of worship, and every song can be considered a prayer to God.
  • Worship is purposeful (Gen. 22:5; Judges 5:3; Psalm 9:1). People don’t worship on accident. Worship must be intentional. Corporate worship is an outflow of what Christians ought to be practicing and living in their everyday lives (Romans 12:1). True worship involves the Spirit (John 4:23-24), because He can help us worship.
