The Bible says that "Heaven's declare the Glory of God." Scripture also indicates that if we don't praise Him, the very rocks will cry out! When Jesus met the woman at the well, He said that the "Father is seeking those who will worship Him."
Psalm 147:1 tells us, "Praise the Lord! It is good to sing praises to our God; For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful.
Our goal is to offer a well-rounded music ministry for preschoolers through adults. We want to provide musical training with a Biblical foundation so that our worship experience Exalts the Savior, Encourages the Saints, and Evangelizes the Sinner.

One of the most potent and penetrating experiences found in church services today is the dynamic of numerous voices lifted in passionate worship. It is pleasing to God, fulfilling to the worshiper, and compelling to the seeker.
At Philadelphia, we are not necessarily looking for great voices, but for great worshipers. We all have one thing in common a love for Jesus and a desire to worship and praise Him to the best of our abilities.
Our DNA at Philadelphia is to Love God, Love Others, & Show Others God's Love.
Visit a Choir Rehearsal! We are excited to welcome guests each week in rehearsals! We welcome singers in all voice parts (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). If you are college-age and above, we invite you to join this family of worshipers. We worship, work, laugh, cry, and grow together week by week. There are no auditions, and no one will ever be turned away. We have room for you! Come and worship with us.

The cornerstone of this instrumental ministry, the Philadelphia Baptist Church Worship Orchestra is a dynamic ensemble of musicians using their skills for God's glory. We continually seek to "play skillfully" as instructed in Psalm 33:3. Our ministry extends from our church to our community and beyond. Being involved in the Orchestra will challenge you musically, but most importantly, you will be challenged spiritually, and you will be blessed as you bless others. The most important requirement to join the Orchestra is that you have a heart willing to serve others.
Membership begins with a brief meeting with the Minister of Music. The past or present experience of playing a musical instrument is required. If you are a High School Junior or older, we would love to have you audition to be part of our ministry.
