Jesus Culture – Fierce (Feat. Chris Quilala)

Fierce, featuring Chris Quilala is a hit single off Jesus Culture’s album “Let It Echo.” A Jesus Culture – affiliated CCM artist and worship leader based out of Redding, California. I really like this song and pray for all members that they are true to the word and to their Journey of reaching out to the youth of the world and telling them about the Lord!

Jesus Culture is an American international Christian revivalist youth outreach ministry that was formed at the Bethel Church of Redding, California. Jesus Culture Ministry hosts conferences and operates a record label, Jesus Culture Music, to share its message and spread worship. In 2013, Jesus Culture moved to plant a church in Sacramento. Meetings started on September 14, 2014.

Background – 

In late 1999, the youth group at Bethel Church in Redding, California, led by youth pastor Banning Liebscher, launched the first Jesus Culture conference. Tony Cummings, music editor of Cross Rhythms, described the ministry as “one of the most significant Christian movements in post-war America”.

According to Jesus Culture’s website, “The heart of these gatherings was to serve other churches and lead young people to experience the radical love of God.

In 2013, Jesus Culture moved to Sacramento to plant a church, and meetings started at Folsom High School on September 14, 2014.

Jesus Culture Music – 

Jesus Culture Music is the music label for the Jesus Culture Ministry. Its albums feature the worship of the Jesus Culture band, performing a mix of original and cover songs.

Youth worship leaders Kim Walker-Smith, Melissa How and Chris Quilala, long active with the youth group at Bethel Church in Redding, became the core of the Jesus Culture band. Jesus Culture states the purpose of music in their movement is to “ignite revival in the nations of the earth; to compel the Body of Christ to radically abandon itself to a lifestyle of worship; to encounter His extravagant love and raw power.”

John F. MacArthur, an American Evangelical Christian pastor, who has publicly criticized all forms of charismatic worship, has also been critical of performances by Jesus Culture.

Since 2006, the band has released a number of albums on the Jesus Culture Music label. Their 2011 album, Awakening (Live From Chicago), appeared at No. 133 on the Canadian Sound Scan charts. Although the album was reviewed by Christianity Today, who critiqued that “…amps of staggering sound leave little room for thoughtful reflection or deliberate contemplation…”, Jesus Freak Hideout …” praised it for its “very overt sense of passion for the LORD and worshiping him.”

 

 

 

Song Lyrics – 

Before I Call
Before I Ever Cry
You Answer Me
From Where The Thunder Hides
I Can’t Outrun
This Heart I’m Tethered To
When Every Step
I Collide With You
Like A Tidal Wave
Crashing Over Me
Rushing In To Meet Me Here
Your Love Is Fierce
Like A Hurricane
That I Can’t Escape
Tearing Through The Atmosphere
Your Love Is Fierce
You Cannot Fail
The Only Thing I’ve Found
Is Through It All
You Never Let Me Down
You Don’t Hold Back
Relentless In Pursuit
At Every Turn
I Come Face To Face With You
Like A Tidal Wave
Crashing Over Me
Rushing In To Meet Me Here
Your Love Is Fierce
Like A Hurricane
That I Can’t Escape
Tearing Through The Atmosphere
Your Love Is Fierce
You Surround Me
You Chase Me Down
You Seek Me Out
How Can I Be Lost
When You Have Called Me Found
You Chase Me Down
You Seek Me Out
How Can I Be Lost
When You Have Called Me Found
You Chase Me Down
You Seek Me Out
How Can I Be Lost
When You Have Called Me Found
Like A Tidal Wave
Crashing Over Me
Rushing In To Meet Me Here
Your Love Is Fierce
Like A Hurricane
That I Can’t Escape
Tearing Through The Atmosphere
His Love Is Fierce
Your Love Is Fierce
You Never Let Go
Your Love Is Fierce
Even Now You Surround Me
Your Love Is Fierce
Always Always
His Love Is Fierce
