Our Music Values

 

imagesMusic is among God’s most precious gifts to humanity. The value of music in worship and Christian living cannot be overstated. God delights in the heartfelt joy of His children as they declare His truth, majesty and glory in song.

As believers in Jesus, we have been given a “new song” (Psalm 40:3) with which to praise Him and testify of God’s grace. We are commanded to be “filled with the Spirit; speaking to (ourselves) in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in (our) heart(s) to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:19). In all this, we are exhorted to “be not conformed to this world,” (Romans 12:2) but to “shine as lights in the world” (Philippians 2:15).

With these principles in mind, our goal at Central Baptist Church is to join in song together as a people yielded to God’s Holy Spirit and committed to music that glorifies Christ. We strive to choose the very best of the great hymns of the Christian faith along with new music that reflects the timeless principles of God’s Word. We include in our services a variety of instruments and styles that enrich our worship. In all this, we endeavor to create an atmosphere of authentic, God-centered worship that does not stem from popular entertainment culture.

Our services are filled with a genuine joy and enthusiasm in the hearts of God’s people. The singing is robust and our auditorium resounds with the beautiful sound of Christian praise.

We invite you to join with us in worship and praise to our King. “O, magnify the Lord with me and let us exalt His name together!” (Psalm 34:3). Also consider these verses: 1 Corinthians 14:15; James 5:13; Colossians 3:16.
