The Music Ministry at First Baptist Roswell offers opportunities for musicians of all ages to be actively and intimately involved in worship life. Through choral, instrumental, and handbell ensembles, we offer many points of entry for families and individuals to learn about and give expression to our faith.
To love our God, the reason we live; to love our god, the highest call. Nothing satisfies our soul, gives life meaning, makes us whole for this purpose we were made…to love our God.
We believe one of the most passionate, powerful, and personal ways of worshiping God is through music. When we worship with body, mind, spirit, and voice; we love God and love the world with our music and our lives.
