Bill and Gloria Gaither wrote this powerful song in 1973. Most of us were not even born at that time. The song is a re-affirmation of the position the church holds in the world and in the kingdom of God.
Under the executive production of Michael W. Smith, the song has been re-made with the help of a couple of award-wining artists such as Mandisa, Toby Mac, Francesca Battistelli, Michael Tate, Joel Smallbone, Sandy Patty, Natalie Grant, and Mark Lowry to bring back life to it. Due to the tough times that we went through in 2020, the church needs to stamp its position.
Michael W. Smith said, ” The past year has not been easy on the church. While not all of us suffered from the virus, we all suffered from a lack of community. It can be challenging in these times of isolation, but the truth is that Christ’s church is ALIVE and WELL.”
Churches in the U.S.A. celebrated the new recording yesterday, the 10th of January 2021 as it was introduced to congregations. The song is now up on Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Music and many more platforms.
The church is surely ALIVE!
