The Music Ministries of First Baptist Church, Gladewater Exist to bring glory to God by providing quality musical experiences to its participants and true worship opportunities to the congregation and the community.  The definition of worship we have adopted as our own is from Dr. Bruce Leafblad:

"Worship is communion with God in which believers, by grace, center their mind's attention and their heart's affection on the Lord, humbly glorifying God in response to His greatness and His word."

We pray you will find this definition true of us as we seek to honor God in Worship.


In light of the choirs calling to use their gifts for God, we should strive to bring others to God's realm.  Worship can be many different things, but music possesses a unique way of making people feel the spirit of the Lord.  The purpose of the Music Ministry is to make those in the congregation feel what we are experiencing in our walk with Christ. To bring those people into a place of Worship.


As a choir we pray for each other, share needs, and have occasional fellowship events outside of our Wednesday and Sunday commitments.  We should treat these fellowships the same as we would a choir rehearsal.  These times of fellowship are a way to gather together in Christ's name, and become closer as a group to better serve the Lord. As a choir member we should seek to encourage and build up one another in times of need.

Thessalonians 5:11

" Therefore encourage one another and build each other up..."

Commitment to Excellence

The definition of excellence is "doing the very best you can with what you have."  This is what we are committed to do.  While we are not after perfection, we are to be totally committed to excellence.  Why would we want to bring anything less before God than the very best we can do!?  As a member of this ministry YOU should be committed to excellence.
