Whitesburg Baptist Church (Huntsville, AL)
The primary purpose of this project was to develop a biblical theology of instrumental worship for Whitesburg Baptist Church (WBC). The opening chapter outlines the development of orchestral worship in the SBC, the challenges of instrumental worship generally, and surveys the specific context of the WBC instrumental ministry. Chapter 2 develops a biblical theology of instrumental worship, surveying the Pentateuch, Davidic worship, the Psalms, the Prophets, and the New Testament. Chapter 3 establishes why a larger instrumental ministry can be significant in the life of a church, and answers the common objections to such a ministry. Chapter 4 develops a curriculum to be taught to the WBC Orchestra, and chapter 5 evaluates the effectiveness of the project.
