“Then David spoke to the leaders of the Levites to appoint their brethren to be the singers accompanied by instruments of music, stringed instruments, harps, and cymbals, by raising the voice with resounding joy.” - 1 Chronicles 15:16

The Music Ministry was organized by the Late Reverend Fred Porter, former Pastor, as a vehicle for decision making of official and organizational matters concerning the singing aggregations of the Antioch Baptist Church.

Under the leadership of our current pastor, Dr. William H. Gibbs, our Music Ministry has purposed in its heart to glorify God by drawing others unto Him through spiritually unified efforts that ensure the operation of this ministry is Worship directed.

The ministry is led by the Minister of Music who serves under the pastor. The ministry consists of a Music Committee, staff musicians Praise and Worship Ministry and four organized choirs.

The Music Committee is made up of the Minister of Music, all choir presidents, and all staff musicians holding membership at this church.

The staff musicians consist of primary and support musicians. The primary musician is the lead musician responsible for the musical development of his or her respective choir and support musicians. The support musicians are those accompanying and supporting the primary musician utilizing the piano, organ, drum, bass and/or lead guitar, and bongo instruments.

The organized choirs are, in order of seniority: Gospel Chorus (1952); Wheeler Memorial Gospel Choir (1965); Junior Choir (1972); and the Male Chorus (1974).
