Contemporary Christian music

Contemporary Christian music (or CCM—and occasionally "inspirational music") is a genre of modern popular music which is lyrically focused on matters concerned with the Christian faith. It formed as those affected by the 1960s Jesus movement revival began to express themselves in a more contemporary style of music than the hymns, Gospel and Southern Gospel music that was prevalent in the church at the time. Today, the term is typically used to refer to pop, rock, or praise & worship styles.

This is a Christian song about believing in your faith

Contributed by Caitlyn Schmidt

Contemporary Christian music reflects a big movement that is stirring in the community today. This song in particular proclaims the message that God is worth fighting for. It's a message that challenges Christians who are living in their comfort zone. In the 21st century where a liberal movement is stirring, it is easier for Christians to "go with the flow of the world." There are many songs such as this that promotes surrender, sacrifice, and radical Christianity today. This is not the only type of song however, there are other songs that are specifically for an individual to gain encouragement when they are going through a bump in the road.
