In 2014 BY THE BOOK QUARTET was born out of the music ministry of First Baptist Church New Waverly Texas. While some of the members have changed over the years, our mission remains the same. To sing the Gospel message of God's redeeming grace, to lead his lost sheep to the fold and tell the world God still saves and he still heals.
All of our members have a testimony of personal salvation and commitment to God's work and often share those experiences as the spirit leads at our concerts. We are extremely blessed to experience a common calling to sing the Gospel and we are available for concerts, revivals and events at your church or function. Contact us about a free concert and follow us on Facebook for periodic updates.
Loving God, Loving you
