"Music That Ministers To The Soul"
|Rev. Henry L. Parker, Jr., Minister of Music|
The purpose of the St. John Missionary Baptist Church Music Ministry is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through songs, encourage believers in their walk with Christ, lead the congregation in worship and provide an avenue through which individuals may share their gift and be an intregal part of the worship. We enjoy spreading the Word of God through our musical experiences.We believe that our music ministry should accomplish three specific tasks:
- First, the Ministry of Music must lead all believers to Worship God, to give God the glory, praise, honor and thanks due Him for who He is, and for what He has done.
- Secondly, sing songs that prepare one’s heart for the word that they might be led to Christ and receive Him as their personal Savior. This task is Evangelism.
- Thirdly, vitalizing the Ministry of Music in St. John is Discipleship. That is leading men to spiritual maturity. This task is accomplished through providing a means of developing understanding of the messages of the songs sung.
We must be about our Father’s business, letting the world know through the medium of sacred music, that He lives! We thank God for the ability, the will, and the responsibility.
“Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints.” - Psalm 149:1
