“But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.” | John 4:23 (ESV)
The First Christian Church Music Ministry was created with the mission to connect others to God through music.
Recognizing that our ultimate goal is to equip and send brothers and sisters in Christ out with the Gospel, we have three primary purposes:
- Gospel Clarity- We seek to enthusiastically and clearly present the Gospel of Jesus Christ through different forms of musical expression.
- Gospel Community- We seek to provide a worship community where people can mature and grow in faith alongside other believers through the act of worship.
- Gospel Commission- We seek to proclaim the Gospel through song out into this world so that God may receive all glory, laud, and honor.

It is my joy and honor to minister and walk in faith with the members of First Christian Church Lubbock. We are a musical community that is founded on the Gospel and live to praise the name of Jesus more than our own. All are welcome to join us, but all are expected to grow and be changed by the power of the Gospel. My prayer is that the Lord continues to nurture and grow this ministry according to His will and receive all glory and honor from it.
