The Music Ministry seeks to not only to sing, dance, and play instruments with a Spirit-filled heart, but also with worshipful meaning and understanding. Music is a spiritual gift that we bring to each service and contributes to the praise and adoration of God and His Son, Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.

The various departments in the Music Ministry are as follows:

Ensemble Age Range Description
Praise Team Adult The 'Praise Team' at First Cosmopolitan Baptist Church has worked hard to create a tradition of excellence and to present a variety of songs to spiritually accommodate the entire congregation. Since it's inception they have done an excellent job with their energetic presentation of 'Songs of Praise'. The music they sing on 'Special Occasions' and before the 'Morning Services', seem to always find a way of lifting the spirit, and preparing those in attendance to receive the Word of God.
Youth Choir 5-17 At First Cosmopolitan Baptist Church our Music Ministry is open to children of all ages, and we encourage them as early as possible to offer their talents to serve God. It is our belief that music can enrich their lives and create a foundation by which they may lead spiritually productive lives. The youth who participate in our choirs are a vital part of our Music Ministry and have a regular rotation in our Sunday Morning Services.
Gospel Choir Adult

The W. B. Lewis Gospel Choir was organized under the leadership of our current pastor, Rev. Dr. W. B. Lewis. It wasn't long before the need for a Gospel Choir was envisioned and the birth of the W. B. Lewis Gospel Choir was brought forth to sing God's praises. Through the years the W. B. Lewis Gospel Choir has increased its membership and continues to grow spiritually. God has blessed them over the years with wonderful, talented, and gifted musicians who have used their talents for the uplifting of His Kingdom.
