Great Songs of the Faith
Welcome to Great Songs of the Faith! We are a ministry of Four Rivers Community Broadcasting and a sister station of Word FM. Founded in 1994, we are currently based in Harleysville, PA. Our mission is to offer positive, uplifting music and content to encourage faith, reach families, and impact communities. A contemporary music ministry, Word FM seeks to bring the message of God’s love through song and life stories of everyday people. The station (and the music itself) is both a ministry and mission! Feel free to visit Word FM’s website.
A love of hymns and Christian music led us to establish and grow the Word FM radio network as a way to reach the community with the Gospel. Great Songs of the Faith is an outgrowth of this work.
It is our hope that the hymns and sacred music heard on Great Songs of the Faith will brighten your day whenever you listen.
Those who love old hymns have found them to be a great source of hope and peace. While more than a few reflect the life experiences of the authors, some are the result of traumatic personal experiences like Horatio Spafford’s “It Is Well with My Soul.” Yet others are the work of people like Fanny Crosby (8,000 hymns and gospel songs) and Charles Wesley (6,000 hymns) who simply had a God-given gift for writing.
Many churches today have abandoned hymns in favor of more modern songs. Yet others are re-writing old hymns to eliminate gender references and older, less familiar words. Still others are removing hymns and verses that refer to "warfare" even though spiritual warfare is ongoing.
Here at Great Songs of the Faith, we strive to share the old-time favorites in original form and style as well as some newer hymns that follow what we'll simply call "the old-time style of Church music.”
