Pastor Hans Frei
As the Church, the body of Christ, we have the great joy of worshiping God in many ways; through ministry and service to others, through the reading and study of His word, through giving and prayer as well as music. Music has played an important roll throughout the history of God’s people in both Old and New Testaments and throughout the modern history of the Christian church.
We worship because God is worthy of our praise and worship. It is one way for us to honor and give him the glory he deserves. It can also be the means by which God blesses us. We can connect with Him through our music and praise.
The psalmist wrote:
“Oh come, lets us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand. Psalms 95: 6-7
In Psalms 98 he records the following;
“Sing to the Lord a new song, for He has done marvelous things….shout for joy to the Lord of all the earth. Burst into jubilant song and music; make music to the Lord…”
At Lake Don Pedro Baptist we are blessed with people from many different backgrounds and taste in music. We incorporate traditional hymns, gospel, and more contemporary music as well. The style is not as important as trying to insure that our worship is in both “Spirit and in Truth” and that we give full glory and honor to Him whom we praise.
Within our music ministry we offer places to serve our Lord. Our multi-media and sound department is always looking for individuals who are willing to be trained to enhance our worship experience. If your talent is a specific musical instrument, we love backup players for our praise and worship team . For those who love to sing, we welcome special music in the form of soloists or groups. Although worship involves much more than a song, we at LDPBC would like to believe our music ministry draws people into a place of worship, prepares our hearts to hear the word and brings a sweet sound to our Lord’s ears.
