The Sanctuary Choir
First Baptist Church of Jackson
The Sanctuary Choir of First Baptist Church of Jackson is a group of people who love to use their voice in the praise and worship of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. While we are blessed with some outstanding musicians, most of us are ordinary church members who have a heart for worship and service. Our 375 voice choir leads the congregation in worship each Sunday morning. We also perform major concerts and musicals throughout the year in an effort to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in creative and compelling ways.
For thirty six years, our choir has presented "Carols By Candlelight," a Christmas concert, with over 15,000 people in attendance each year. We have also sung at the Southern Baptist Convention, and most recently presented a benefit concert for First Baptist Church of New Orleans, in hopes to bring hope and encouragement to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Our heartbeat is to lead people to love the Lord with all our hearts, souls and minds . . . what Christ described as the "greatest commandment."
