|Paradise is the brand new release from Newport, the worship ministry of Orange County's Newport Church. Filled with songs written for this generation of worshippers, the album reflects the heart of Newport to see people come into the presence of God.
The first single from the album, "Echo," captures all the fullness and joy that comes from encountering God and entering into a relationship with Him. Through Him, we become a light to the world and we echo His heartbeat, reflecting Him to everyone around us. The song rejoices, "There’s nothing like living in Your light, in the glow of Your paradise. Just to be here by Your side as we echo echo echo Your heartbeat." "Chasing Your Heart" is a driving anthem that rejoices in God's love and professes our deep devotion and pursuit of Him, "I believe in your love through it all. I’m yours forever. I won't stop chasing your heart. I'm never leaving your side through it all. I’m yours forever. I won't stop chasing your heart through the end of a lifetime." "Live To Know You" expresses complete adoration for God and a desire to better know Him and to surrender all that we are to Him. Worship leader, Graham Bronczyk writes, "When we strip everything of life away, the good, the bad, the beautiful, and the painful, in the end we will find there is only one thing that we will have wished we gave more time and attention to. That is, to know God and make Him known. For it is only in Christ that we find true life. It is in Him that we are strengthened through our difficulty. It is in having a passion to know Jesus that we find our lives rising ever higher and stronger." The songs on Paradise are not only congregational and relevant, but they are certain to minister to believers for years to come.
