Minnesota-based River Valley Worship recently released their debut label single on BEC Worship, "World Needs Jesus." The single is the debut song from the group's upcoming full-length album Million Lifetimes, slated for release on March 2.
"World Needs Jesus" is River Valley Worship's first single for 2018 and is meant as a declaration of the broken state of the world and the need for our Savior Jesus.
"Unfortunately this song will always be relevant," shares River Valley Worship leader Ryan Williams. "We live in a broken world that will always need an anthem to rise above the brokenness. 'World Needs Jesus' has reminded me that my worship and my world don't run along separate lines, but they need to intersect. Let's be brave enough to sing about the darkness and sing that dark straight to the light of Jesus."
"World Needs Jesus" is available now at Spotify and Apple music (http://smarturl.it/WorldNeedsJesus).
