Music

At Thaxton Baptist we appreciate and utilize a variety of worship styles on any given Sunday morning. A visitor can expect to hear classic hymns of the faith, familiar choruses from the last few decades, as well as contemporary worship favorites. We want our music to reflect the multiple generations that worship together in our gatherings, to compliment the preaching of the Word, and most importantly to  bring glory to Christ no matter what we sing. 

On this page we will share links to new songs that we will be introducing in the coming months. Whether you are a visitor, or a longtime member, you can use this resource to familiarize yourself with the newest songs we will be singing and the Truth we will be confessing together. 

  • King of Kings

    Like many of the great hymns of faith, this song walks through the story of redemption in each verse. Verse one outlines our need and reminds us of the incarnation. Verse two speaks of the ministry and death of Christ. Verse three glories in the resurrection while the final verse reminds us that, as the church, we too have a place in the arc of redemption. The chorus is an affirmation of the Trinity as well as a declaration of the Kingship of Jesus. 

  • Yet Not I But Christ In Me

    Galatians 2:20 declares: I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. This modern hymn speaks to this truth, reminding us that on our own we cannot earn salvation, overcome fear, defeat sin, and hope for heaven. Yet, through Christ in us, we have assurance of all this more. 

  • Seas of Crimson

    The Apostle Paul tells us in Romans 5 that death entered the world through sin. This song celebrates the work of Christ in overcoming both sin and death. We confess in this song that at the cross our sins were "drowned in seas of crimson" and also that in the resurrection "death is beaten." Our best response to the Work of Christ is to proclaim together, "Hallelujah!"
