Now Playing: Worship Service at Arouca Baptist Church
We are so excited about the new steel pan! We have been wanting to incorporate the steel pan into our worship services for a while. Now we can do just that! Special thanks to Nikki for using her connections to get us a good deal, and special thanks to Pastor Eric for doing all the running around to make it happen!
Here is the story behind the hymn:
The heart of the Christian gospel is a person, not a church or a system of doctrines. The angel proclaimed: “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21)
Priscilla J. Owens, a Baltimore public school teacher for 49 years, wrote these stirring soul-winning words for a missionary service in the Sunday school of the Union Square Methodist Church.
Fourteen years later, William Kirkpatrrick wedded his vibrant music to her words.
And through the years they have challenged God's people with the urgency of soul winning.http://www.tanbible.com/tol_sng/jesussaves.htm
