First Baptist Church of Avon Park

Having a ministry of music in the church dates all of the way back to the time of King David in the Old Testament era. At the direction of the Holy Spirit he established a music ministry that employed several thousand persons who were gifted for music. Leaders were appointed who were accountable to the King himself. They organized and trained those who served the Tabernacle and, later, Temple ministries, so the music of worship would be done skillfully, reverently and inspiringly.

Principles of Our Music Ministry

With the sound principles of that ministry, and the wonderful model that heavenly worship offers us, we affirm that:

  • Our ministry is to provide musical leadership of the church family in the worship of God (1 Chronicles 25:1).
  • We are to assist in the mutual exhortation and encouragement of one another through spiritual songs (Ephesians 5:19,20Colossians 3:16).
  • We are to provide training for all ages in church music so all individuals and ensembles will be well prepared for ministry (1 Chronicles 15:2225:7).
  • We are to be a ministry of the church through which those gifted for music can exercise their gifts for the benefit of the church family. (1 Corinthians12:7-1114:26).
  • We should keep before us the importance of glorifying God rather than ourselves in our music making.



The Worship Choir of First Baptist provides musical leadership for our corporate worship services by supplementing the weekly congregational singing as well as offering special musical selections during the service. The choir meets for rehearsal every Wednesday night (during the school year) from 6:00-7:30pm in the choir room. The choir room is located in the main building just up the staircases just through the sanctuary doors beside the piano and organ. If you have any questions about joining the choir or would like more information, contact our Director of Church Music, Joy Loomis.

We also have choirs just for children and youth. You can find information about each of these opportunites on the FBC Connect Family Ministry Page.
