Celebrating 30 years of ministry, Hillsong Church is focusing on pioneering again seeking to do so on the ancient foundations of God’s Word and the bedrock of the centuries of faithful men and women who have built the church. Standing on a long line of music legacy, Hillsong has brought to the church songs such as “Shout To The Lord,” “Mighty To Save,” “Hosanna,” “Cornerstone” and “Forever Reign.”
This annual live release features 11 new songs that will refresh an individual and congregational worship. No Other Name highlights the songwriting and vocals of those now well-known Hillsong Worship team, including Reuben Morgan, Ben Fielding, Matt Crocker, Joel Houston, Nigel Hendroff, Autumn Hardmann, Annie Garrett, Jad Gillies, David Ware, and Taya Smith.
One of the album’s highlights includes the song based on the Apostles’ Creed titled “This I Believe” written by Ben Fielding and Matt Crocker. Created after an Australian Anglican minister sent a request to Hillsong Church via Twitter to use the Apostles’ Creed, one of the oldest and most widely used statements across the church at large, “This I Believe” has already been hailed as one of the most unifying pieces of music to be produced for decades.
“In an age where there is so much division, it’s powerful to declare something we all believe is true, emphasizing our core beliefs,” said co-writer and Hillsong worship leader Ben Fielding. “I love anything that has the power to unify the church. This creed has done that for close to 1700 years.”
Hillsong Worship will be back in the United States for their “No Other Name” Tour that begins August 14 in Boston and concluding August 31 in Grand Rapids (dates below). Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased through Premier Productions. Hillsong Worship will also be performing at the 2nd Annual Hillsong Conference in New York City, which will be held at The Theater at Madison Square Garden on October 16-18th.
