MUSIC

Music has always been a powerful form of worship and has played an important role in The Salvation Army since the beginning. On Wonderful Words of Life, we strive to share music with our listeners that inspires, moves, encourages and speaks words of life while lifting high the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Below are some of the artists and groups we feature on our program. If you are interested in purchasing some of their albums, follow the links in each section to learn more.
