“The word of Christ must richly dwell in us in all wisdom, teaching, and admonishing each other in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” Colossians 3:16
The music ministry of First Baptist Birmingham is centered on these words; we hope to glorify God in our music as we encourage the church, teach one another, and live out the Gospel through worship. We think of worship as a holy banquet of praise for God, and our services reflect a broad range of styles that help our diverse church family sing their praise. We also hope to engage the entire congregation in singing, playing, praying, preparing, and practicing. We understand that the worship service is not a platform for performance, and everyone must offer their own praise to God. At First Baptist you will be challenged to engage in worship, give your best, and lift up the name of Jesus Christ.
