At Emmanuel Baptist Church, we seek to be obedient to the Word of God, singing “…hymns and spiritual songs…” as we are instructed in Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16.
God alone is our audience, and He is the reason for our song; therefore, it is our desire that the music of EBC is glorifying to Him and sound in doctrine. The LORD deserves our very best, and thus we emphasize the value of a quality musical education. The principles of music theory and four-part harmony are taught weekly in the children’s ministries, and adults likewise are encouraged to cultivate a knowledge of and appreciation for sacred music. Private singing, piano, guitar, and violin lessons are available for students of all ages.
The songs of Emmanuel Baptist Church are traditional and doctrinal, exalting only the Lord Jesus Christ. We resist the Contemporary Christian Music movement.
The Music Ministry includes:
- Congregational Singing
- Special Music
- Shape Note Method Instruction for 4-Part Harmony
- Private Music Lessons
