..the singers were to make themselves heard with one voice
to praise and to glorify the Lord;
and when they lifted up their voice
accompanied by trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music,
and when they praised the Lord saying,
“He indeed is good for His lovingkindness is everlasting,”
then the house of the
so that the priests could not rise to minister
for the glory of the Lord filled the house of God.
2 Chronicles 5:13-14
The Ridgecrest Baptist Music and Worship ministry exists and functions in order to magnify God. Our purpose is to provide a ministry that will effectively contribute to bringing people to Jesus Christ and to equip and encourage believers to discover, develop, and use their talents in the worship of God.
The Adult Choir and Orchestra
We are first and foremost a worshipping group.
God has called us to worship Him. It is for an audience of One that we sing a song or play an instrument.
We are also a worship-leading group.
We desire to use the music that God gives us to proclaim His glory, declare our affection, and celebrate His presence. The Adult Choir and Orchestra lead in worship and praise during the 8:15 a.m. & 6:00 p.m. Sunday worship services and share in special presentations throughout the year.
This choir is for anyone who wants to worship God.

This ministry’s purpose is to lead the music portion of the Alive Worship service at 10:50 on Sunday mornings. We strive to lead people in worship to our God by not only being worship leaders but more importantly by being worshipers. Our desire is to lead people to have a genuine experience with God in a way that permanently impacts their lives! We feel led to do this through the use of modern spiritual songs and new arrangements of older songs, all of which are to be theologically sound and God-honoring.
We are always seeking to expand our ministry and include as many people whom God has called to serve in this manner as possible. While it’s not always possible to include everyone who wants to be a part, we would be glad to talk with you about all sorts of different ways to get plugged in and serve!
