Worship & Music

About Our team

The worship of God is essential in the life of a Christian. At Central Baptist Church, our Music and Worship ministry exists to glorify God and strives to provide people opportunities for:

  • Leadership in the corporate worship of God
  • Personal spiritual development
  • Supportive relationships
  • Music education
  • Community outreach
  • Mission trips and events
  • Involvement in the church

The following Scripture is useful in describing the philosophy of the Music and Worship Ministry at Central Baptist Church:

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.

Colossians 3:16-17 (NIV)

Throughout scripture, Christians are instructed to worship the Lord through singing and music. At Central Baptist Church, we have many ways to be involved in worship leadership and discipleship through music and the arts. Above all, we want to minister to you and your family and we have a place for you to plug in no matter your age, interests, or musical skill level.

Please explore the many different musical options you have at Central Baptist Church!
