The Christ Baptist Worship and Music Ministry’s mission each week is to bring praise, honor and glory to God … expressing and testifying to biblical truth.
The central focus of music in worship at Christ Baptist Church is God.
“Sing to Him, sing praises to Him” – Psalm 105:2
Music used in worship should express biblical truth and should be sound in doctrine.
“God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” – John 4:24
Music used to praise the Lord should be glorious, or excellent, since He is glorious.
“Sing the glory of His name; make His praise glorious.” – Psalm 66:2
Singing can and should be used to express a variety of emotions.
“Come before Him with joyful singing.” – Psalm 100:2
“Jeremiah chanted a lament for Josiah. And all the male and female singers speak about Josiah in their lamentations to this day.” – 2 Chronicles 35:25
Music in worship should not conflict with an atmosphere of reverence.
“Our Father who is in heaven, hallowed be Your name.” – Matthew 6:9
Worship music can and should communicate the truth to those without Christ.
“He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; many will see and fear and will trust in the Lord.”
Music in worship should enhance the unity of the church.
“May the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” – Romans 15:5-6
Worship music can and should be in a variety of forms.
“O Sing to the Lord a new song.” – Psalm 98:1
“Praise Him with trumpet sound; praise Him with harp and lyre, praise Him with timbrel.” – Psalm 150:3-4
Worship music and our praise should be an expression of love for and deference to brothers and sisters in Christ.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” – John 13:34
The form and presentation of worship music should be free from worldly associations.
“Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness” … Come out from their midst and be separate, says the Lord.” – 2 Corinthians 6:14, 17
Worship music can and should be used to teach and to testify to the truth.
“… teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs.” – Colossians 3:16
Singing in worship can be in the first person singular or plural.
“I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord.” – Psalm 122:1
“We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks.” – Psalm 75:1
