Bethel Live releases its all new, full-length recording Be Lifted High Feb. 15, 2011 on Kingsway as a special CD/DVD Digipak combo. Recorded live at Bethel Church in Redding, CA, the album features worship leaders Brian and Jenn Johnson, Jeremy Riddle, William Matthews, Amanda Falk and Steffany Frizzell. Be Lifted High picks up where Here Is Love (Nov. 2010) left off and is being distributed in the US through EMI CMG Distribution.

Be Lifted High includes 13 songs recorded live over a series of Bethel Church worship services and features the passionate, genuine and spontaneous worship of the church. The songs capture the heart of a growing movement as the bonus DVD features interviews on worship with Bill Johnson, Bethel Church sr. pastor; Kris Vallotton, Bethel Church sr. associate pastor; Brian and Jenn Johnson, Jeremy Riddle and other Bethel Music artists. The DVD also includes personal stories from the artists of how worship has changed their lives, including Brian Johnson sharing in detail for the first time the story of how the power of praise freed him from years of spiritual torment.

“There are moments in worship where the power of God invades so strongly through the creative medium of music that a deep connection between us and our heavenly Father is born,” says Brian Johnson, who along with his wife Jenn are the senior worship pastors at Bethel Church and oversee the Bethel School of worship. “Our desire is to pursue and capture these moments so that believers across the globe can enter into that experience and encounter Him.”

“God is really pouring out during our corporate worship times at Bethel this much deeper understanding of his love; just how passionate He is for His people. God’s love is furious; it’s like no other force,” says Jeremy Riddle, known for his hit single “Sweetly Broken” that was No. 1 on the K-LOVE Radio Network for over 40 weeks in 2007 and who has toured with Rebecca St. James, Big Daddy Weave and Brenton Brown. Quoting the song “Furious” from Be Lifted High, Riddle continues, “We’ve only glimpsed His vast affections, heard whispers of His heart and His passion. That kind of revelation of His love, that is what changes people, that is what brings people to repentance. That is what transforms nations, cities and neighborhoods.”
