- About Us
"Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desire of your heart." - (Psalm 37:4)
We are pleased that you have expressed interest in the Worship Ministry of Harvard Avenue Baptist Church. We believe that living a life of worship is the primary purpose of a believer in Christ. Therefore, we treat God’s requirement to worship Him as the complete passion and desire of our hearts. The goal of the Worship Ministry of HABC is to raise up genuine worshipers of the Triune God. Secondarily, we want to identify, train, and equip musicians who will humbly and skillfully serve God’s purposes for and through the church. One of the biblical truths that drives us is the great news that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. As worshipers we delight in the presence of God.

WORSHIP MINISTRY CORE VALUES
God-glorifying – God alone deserves our worship and we will strive to experience God in such a way that he is glorified in our affections.
Word-driven – We value the priority of Scripture in our services, as the content of our singing, praying, and proclamation will be based upon the Word of God.
Christ-centered – We will focus on God’s redemptive plan of salvation through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Spirit-empowered – We will depend on the Spirit’s work of illuminating truth and stirring our affections towards Christ.
Community – We are a body of faith, worshiping corporately, and we value the encouragement and edification of the local church. We recognize the significance and importance of congregational singing.
Diversity – We desire to reflect the diversity of God and His infinite worth in our expressions of worship, acknowledging the importance of various musical styles and texts.
Excellence – We want to present the truths of God in our songs, prayers, and preaching in such a way that people’s attention will not be diverted from the substance, so that we present the gospel with clarity and distinction.
Authenticity – We seek to be authentic worshipers in our corporate gatherings, an extension of the spiritual fruit and maturity in our personal lives, marked by an atmosphere that promotes a genuine encounter with God.
