The whole instrument was rather uninspiring and cost $53,000 in 1972. -- Stephen Britain via Facebook

Database Manager on March 16, 2019:

Updated by Jim Thompson, listing this web site as a source of information: http://www.citygateswf.org/church-worship-services/.

First Baptist merged with \"Elevation Ministries\" to become what they now call \"CityGate Ministries\". The organ console appears to be in place (background on the web-site) and is possibly used at the \"traditional\" (Baptist heritage) service (although the Staff List has no Organist).
