Man is separated, by sin, from God. We are unable to rid ourselves of sin, so our Heavenly Father sent His Son, Jesus the Christ, to be the sacrifice for our sins, He died on the cross to bring us forgiveness. We accept salvation by placing our faith in Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior.
Music is important in worship. Psalm 47:6 says, “Sing praises to God, sing praises; Sing praises to our King, sing praises.” Praise through music is a medium that people can relate to. “He, who sings, prays twice” is one of Jorgen’s favorite quotes.
Come, be a part of the worship experience at Oak Ridge Baptist Church, and join with us as we give praise to our loving Heavenly Father! You will be glad you did!
