We minister to the body of Christ through original Worship songs and Christian music for congregational worship. This encourages believers to focus exclusively on God in worship. Over the radio and internet we are able to expand our global reach. When ministering live at churches, Christian outreaches, secular events, rest homes, prisons, Celebrate Recovery, and homeless shelters, we are able to help believers and non-believers reach the Lord and receive Him as savior, to help fulfill Matt. 28:18-20, The Great Commission of Jesus Christ.
