Philosophy of Worship
Our philosophy of worship is derived from Romans 11:36-12:2:
“For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen. I appeal to you therefore, brothers,[a] by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.”
We are all worshippers by design, the question is what or who do we worship? This passage directs to the object of true worship, the one true God. HE is to be glorified, not ourselves, or our families, or jobs, or anything else…Him and Him alone. We then “present” or “dedicate” ourselves to the thing we glorify. Finally, we sacrifice our gifts and talents to that thing. We desire to exalt Christ weekly to the highest place! We do not view worship as the “music” part of the service, but a lifestyle of willful obedience to the Lord. Therefore, our weekly gatherings are a place for believers to join with the local body of Christ in celebration, repentance, singing, and edification from the Word of God. Come join us!
Worship Choir and Orchestra
This is the primary worship leading group at Concord Baptist Church. In addition to leading the congregation every week, this team performs and leads FOL (Festival of Light), our annual Christmas production, leads in Palm Sunday and Easter productions as well as July 4th presentations and other special performances throughout the year. We meet every Wednesday evening at 6pm in the worship center.
This team is a group of vocalists that sing on mic every week. This is an auditioned group and is on a rotation. Each member is an active part of the choir as well.
The handbell choir performs for special occasions such as Christmas and Easter.
LEAP Team (Lead, Equip, Assimilate, Plan)
This is a group of individuals from every section of the choir and orchestra that aide the worship pastor in the organizing and assimilating of information to the large group. This team helps in event planning, communication, and recruiting for the larger group.
