For who in the heaven can be compared unto the Lord? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the Lord? God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.

Psalm 89:6-7

The music ministry at Metro Baptist Church is an important part of the worship service. Congregational singing allows all those who are redeemed to testify of God’s grace and mercy together. We don’t gather together to worship; we are worshipers who gather together.

Metro Baptist Church Music Philosophy

The Bible exhorts us to sing to the Lord. Music is an integral part of our worship services, and the spoken praise of God is continual before His throne. As with anything touching the practice and worship of God and our view of Him, all must be scrutinized carefully. We should not approach the Lord or His business with a casual or pragmatic attitude.

Some may argue that any style of music is appropriate since there are no Biblical admonitions against certain modes of music. The Bible does however give us principles that guide our behavior. One will not find a list of acceptable clothing, or specific lists of curse words to avoid, but we use Biblical principles to guide us in decision making in those areas, and certainly music is no different. Our music ministry philosophy is the application of principles by which we might live righteously and godly in this present world, and by which we may approach God acceptably.
