Music Ministry

The Mission of the Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church Music Department is to:

  • Facilitate Christian growth through the Ministry of Sacred Church Music.
  • To preserve and promote the legacy of African American Music and to uplift the standards of worship that will stimulate worshippers to contribute to a revival of spirituality in worship through the power of sacred song. 

Thus, the ministry will aid many to turn to salvation being moved by the persuasion of the Gospel combined with the Word, Sermons and prayers of the Saints; for it is the people altogether in Praise and Worship of our God who become the most powerful Gospel when moved by the Holy Spirit.
