Passion & Kristian Stanfill’s new single, “Salvation’s Tide,” offers up a tidal wave of worship, declaring victory upon victory in the name of Jesus. With its anthemic call to worship & underlying themes of revival, hope, and church unity, it stands to be one of Passion’s best singles yet.
Contemporary Christian pop/rock band Audio Adrenaline has released the title track from their newest release, “Sound of the Saints.” Christian AC hadn’t warmed up to carrier single “Love is Stronger,” but I am feeling very strongly about the chances of this great new single.
7eventh Time Down has released “God is on the Move” as their latest single and the follow-up to the Top 25 hit, “Promises.” I’ve been very vocal about liking “Promises”; I hope Christian AC will be more accepting of “God is On the Move,” with its message of hope and trust in a God Who is working things out for the good of those who love Him.
Gateway Worship has released “Grace That Won’t Get Go,” off its latest album, “Walls,” led by established worship leader–and former 4Him vocalist–Mark Harris, who does a masterful job with this future worship anthem.

Here are the Top 10 songs on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart, as of December 5, 2015. The big news here is the No.1 debut of “Great is Thy Faithfulness” by “The Voice” Season 9 contestant Jordan Smith. Smith’s chart achievement pushes Hillsong UNITED’s “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” to No.2 and delays the radio smash of a 59th week on top of the chart.
