are BACK at First Baptist Dallas! Join us for FOUR BIG SUNDAYS as we open our doors to some of the biggest names in Christian music.
Starting Sunday, September 11, join us for four weeks of worship featuring musical guests Ernie Haase + Signature Sound, Rebecca St. James, Newsboys, Dante Bowe, Chris Tomlin, Jordan Feliz, Avalon Worship, and Josh Baldwin.
With over thirty #1 radio hits like “We Believe,” “Born Again,” and “Your Love Never Fails,” numerous Gold and Platinum records, and multiple GRAMMY, American Music, and Dove awards, the Newsboys have been one of the most recognizable names in Christian music since the 1980s. The Newsboys’ Christian rock music style provides a high-energy worship experience. Their mega-hit song, “God’s Not Dead,” inspired a movie franchise with the same name. The Newsboys display unity in diversity as they seek to lead others to Christ through worship.
Having led worship alongside groups like Elevation Worship, Maverick City Music, and Bethel Music Collective, the award-winning Dante Bowe blends gospel, soul, and R&B for a unique worship experience. He has used his gifts as a singer-songwriter to glorify God through numerous hits such as “joyful,” Maverick City Music’s “Promises,” and Bethel Music’s “Champion.” Dante believes that authenticity in worship will help break barriers and build unity in the church.
Named “the most often sung artist anywhere,” by TIME magazine, Chris Tomlin has become one of the most famous Christian artists of all time. Chris Tomlin has released Sunday-morning favorites like “How Great Is Our God,” “Good Good Father,” and “Our God.” With over a dozen #1 singles and a list of GRAMMY, Dove, Billboard, and American Music Awards, it’s no surprise that his songs have been considered modern-day hymns. Chris and his wife, Lauren, are passionate about serving Christ in everything they do and have founded For Others, a non-profit seeking to support children and families impacted by the U.S. Welfare System.
After being named Dove’s “New Artist of the Year” in 2016, Jordan Feliz has toured with artists like TobyMac, Matthew West, and for KING & COUNTRY and written numerous chart-topping hits like “The River,” “Witness,” and “Changed.” Jordan is passionate about sharing his testimony through heartfelt worship and seeks to proclaim the gospel through folk, rock, and soul style of Christian music.
GRAMMY-nominated Avalon Worship has been leading people to Christ and topping the charts since the 1990s. With hits like “Testify to Love,” “Can’t Live a Day,” and “Adonai,” Avalon Worship has been putting out timeless worship music sung in churches across the country. They have had numerous songs reach the Billboard Christian Top 10, including twelve number one hits. Members Janna Long, Greg Long, Jody McBrayer, and Dani Rocca-Herbert have refreshed Avalon’s sound while keeping their musical focus on tight harmonies and powerful vocals. Their most recent self-titled album reflects on God’s sovereignty and calls for Him to draw near.
Josh Baldwin has been leading worship with the Bethel Music Collective since 2014, writing hits like “Stand In Your Love,” and “My King Forever.” Josh has also been featured on albums like Victory, Have It All, and Bethel Music En Español. He seeks to help bring people into a relationship with God, encouraging them through music.
