Psalm 108:1 My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing and make music with all my soul. (NIV)
Music is Powerful! Music has enormous power to engage the emotions, and the Bible resounds with praise and thanks to God through music. In the Old Testament music played a number of different roles, including assisting in the memorization of God’s truth and in reminding God’s people of their fallenness and salvation. In the New Testament God’s people gather together to express their praise to him and to build one another up in the faith. A rich variety of music that is in harmony with the ministry of God’s word is a significant part of the life of the church and points towards the role of music in our praise of God in heaven.
Pinecroft Baptist has made a "Music Page" for you to enjoy Christian music right here anytime you want. This is VERY important for ALL of us to grow as Christians. We will continue to change out the music here to give you a variety to listen to. We will have an "Artist Showcase" to highlight a different artist. Keep checking this page each week for the new music! ENJOY!
