Every church has a sound and that sound reflects its God-given mission. Christ Church, formed in 1986, exists to unite people to God and people to people. Since its inception, Pastors David and Marlinda Ireland have asked God to graciously trumpet this message through the church’s approach to worship and song. Out of his faithfulness, God answers our heart-cry each weekend as over 60 different nationalities gather to worship Him at our Montclair and Rockaway, New Jersey campuses.
Christ Church Worship singers and musicians are a mosaic of passionate Jesus followers. Some are younger and some are more seasoned. They hail from the United States, South America, Europe, the Caribbean and beyond. It doesn’t matter if they grew up in the inner city or the quiet suburbs. Their radical commitment to God and his Bride unites them in mission. His glory drives them in serving selflessly and praying for heaven’s power to be poured out in the worship of Jesus Christ.
The songs on this project reflect Christ Church’s hunger to impact and inspire the hearts of those who long for God’s kingdom to come. Recorded in the Summer of 2016, the songs of surrender, calls to worship and songs of celebration are an invitation to this generation. May the message of this EP ring fresh, clear and urgent! God is King and He always will be. Heaven is here. So, we say Lord, do what you wanna do! We’re open and ready for you.
