The Bethel Music Ministry is dedicated to fulfilling the scriptural commands to worship God with singing and with instrumental music. From congregational worship to vocal and instrumental praise, this ministry fills the sanctuary of Bethel with a joyful noise unto the Lord.
 

The Bethel Concert Choir was formed in 1980 and is comprised of members of Bethel United Pentecostal Church. Since that time the 90-voice choral group, directed by its founder, Doug Davis, Jr., has performed at numerous religious, civic, and community events. From shopping malls, business centers, parades, auditoriums, and stadiums, their exciting and dynamic style has inspired many. They have performed benefit concerts for The United Way, The United Cerebral Palsy Association, Toys For Tots, and Children’s Health Association. In addition to performing each Christmas at shopping malls and Christmas tree lightings throughout the metropolitan area they have also made yearly appearances at the Long Island Festival of Trees and the European American Bank Holiday Extravaganza.

In 1990 the Bethel Choir performed at the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana and in 1998 at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina. The choir has received numerous commendations and citations. In 1995 the choir won the McDonald’s Tri-State Gospel Fest competition which resulted in a showcase performance at Lincoln Center Avery Fisher Hall in New York City. In 1999 the choir won the first place “Gospel Choir Award” in the annual competition sponsored by the Parish Resource Center of Nassau County.

In 1997 the choir recorded its first full length album, Our God Is One. In 2000 the choir released a second album, Truth Shall Triumph, and its first holiday album, Christmas, Once Again.

By invitation of the mayor of Bethlehem, Israel, the Bethel Concert Choir performed before a crowd of 15,000 people at the International Christmas Choir Assembly in Bethlehem’s Manger Square for two consecutive years (1998 and 1999). They also gave a special performance in the Cathedral of Nazareth which was broadcast on Israeli television as well as television networks in the United States. Members of the Bethel Choir were featured in an ABC television special with Peter Jennings. In 2001, the choir performed numerous public concerts in Scotland and in the Netherlands.

The members of the Bethel Concert Choir come from many different backgrounds and ethnic groups. All of them have a testimony of how the power of God has personally changed their lives. The collective testimony of the members of the choir is a declaration that the power of God has filled the void in their hearts and has now become the centerpiece of their very existence.
