The Music Ministry of Olive Baptist Church has one goal and that is to lift high the name of Jesus through excellence in music. In John 12:27-36 we are encouraged to lift Him up so that He may draw souls to Himself and they in turn will become sons and daughters of the Light.
But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Me.– John 12:32
As worshippers enter the sanctuary we want them to encounter the Holy Spirit through Spirit-filled music. We realize that in His presence chains are broken, victories are won and Jesus is given the freedom to call those who will become sons of God. We desire that everyone who walks into the sanctuary will
put their trust in the Light while they have it, so that they may become sons of Light.– John 12:36
When our members and guests exit the sanctuary we pray that they will take the Light into the city. We pray that their testimonies will be used mightily to change the hearts of all those with whom they come in contact. You see, we realize that what we do as a music team really does hinge on life or death for many. So, we sing and play aloud our testimony with Revelation 12 in our hearts!
7 And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9 The great dragon was hurled down--that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. 10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down. 11 They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.– Revelation 12:7-11
To exalt Christ and make disciples through public and private worship.
To develop and nurture men, women, boys and girls as worshipers.
Worship and the leading of worship are at the heart and core of the Olive Baptist Church Music Ministry. It IS what we are about.
We believe that God created each person to be a worshiper and that within the heart of each person is the yearning to worship Jesus Christ as Lord of Lords and King of Kings. Nothing will ever satisfy or fulfill that need and inner desire except active participation in worship of Jesus Christ, the Lord.
We believe God has called this ministry to lead all of His people at Olive Baptist Church in worship - young and old alike. Thus, we strategically design our worship ministry to meet the needs of a broad, culturally diverse, congregation. We seek to teach and train men and women, boys and girls to be worshipers.
The Celebration Orchestra needs instrumentalists to serve in our music ministry. We especially need players who are moderately proficient in strings, woodwinds, or rhythm guitar.
