There may never have been a more challenging time in which to raise teenage youth and impact their lives with the truths of God's Word. There are so many voices clamoring for their attention and seeking to control their direction in life. That is why we earnestly and enthusiastically encourage them, "Remember now thy creator in the days of thy youth!" (Ecclesiastes 12:1). We do that through regular fellowships, activities, camps, trips, and, most importantly our Bible teaching and preaching in our Sunday School class and ProTeen class on Wednesday evenings. We seek to help strengthen youth, families and the work of the Lord by providing an atmosphere where young people can learn the Bible, grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ and have opportunity to serve Him in the local church.
If you have questions or would like more information about our youth ministry, please visit our webpage and/or contact me at the email address below.
Thank you for taking time to visit our web site and having concern about our music ministry. Here at Maranatha Baptist Church, our music is wholly devoted to pleasing God. We do not use Christian contemporary rock music, Christian rap, or any other music that borrows its sounds from the world. We use music that is conservative in sound, and words that honor our Lord and Savior. We also use a hymnal to sing from and are not stuck to just words on a screen.
Maranatha Baptist Church holds fast to a biblical standard for our music in that:
First of all, all music is to glorify God and Him only (I Corinthians 10:31).
Secondly, music is to be as far and different from the world as possible (I John 3:15-17; II Corinthians 6:14-18).
Finally, music should have variety (Colossians 3:16-17).
We are not dedicated or sold out to one publisher, organization, or author, understanding that there is new music that is being produced today that does not have a worldly sound, but is written by those whose lives are motivated to please God and His holiness.
I would personally like to invite you to our services to hear the songs of Zion sung with vigor and life as we are excited about what Jesus has done for us. May the Lord bless you as you serve Him.
