Atlantic Baptist Churches, Past and Present

 

 

Music has always been an essential part of any Baptist Church. Many congregations that ultimately became Baptist Churches initially did not permit musical instruments in their homes or church buildings. They used a pitch pipe or a tuning fork to set the note to which the congregation would sing the hymns. Later the organ was the instrument of choice for churches. As the Kingsboro Church and was without electricity, a pump organ was used. Foot pedals located under the keyboard on the floor were pumped back and forth filling the bellows with air. As the organ keys were depressed air was forced through the instrument creating music. A number of organs have been used during the years of providing music to the choirs and congregation.Over the years junior, youth and senior choirs have ministered to the delight of many worshippers. Quartets and other groups have made the music ministry effective.
