Jesus Culture and Capitol Christian Music Group announce the upcoming release of the new live worship album, Living With A Fire, releasing August 31. There are three new songs (Freedom," "Center of Your Love" and "Living With A Fire") available from the forthcoming album along with the digital pre-order. Also debuting today is the live video for the song "Freedom," see below.
Living With A Fire was recorded at Jesus Culture's home church during their conference in Sacramento, CA and features worship leaders Kim Walker-Smith, Chris Quilala, Bryan & Katie Torwalt, Derek Johnson and Chris McClarney.
"It was amazing to record at our home conference again," shares Chris Quilala. "The worship that poured out by every single person in the room was contagious. I forever want my heart to burn with passion for God so the world might know the love of Christ through my life. This is the simple message of Living with a Fire. It is especially important for the church, in this time, to keep their hearts burning for Jesus and to be a light to the world."
For nearly 20 years, Jesus Culture has ushered the listener into times of worship and encounters with Jesus. As a worship team they have grieved, celebrated, and fought for the treasure that is found in communion with one another and with God. The flame that begin two decades ago of love is still burning; compelling them in every lyric, in every gathering, and in every prayer. This album proclaims the matchless love of Jesus and to see a generation of young and old, completely given to walking in His presence.
"Over the years we have poured our lives out for Jesus, fought for our relationships with Him, and also our relationships with each other," explains Kim Walker-Smith. "When we first started, it was a passion that ignited in our hearts that became the flame that Jesus fanned into a fire. Our prayer in the beginning was that we would never lose sight of what matters above everything else; relationship with Jesus and bringing Him glory! Now, on the verge of 20 years, we can say with conviction that our hearts are still burning for Jesus, and we are still wanting to bring Him glory, above all."
Jesus Culture also announced today that they will be heading out on tour in October starting in Portland, OR and ending in Philadelphia, PA.
