In a time when the news seems to grow darker every day, it can be easy to lose heart and feel that the darkness is going to take over.

Victorious is the newest release from New Hope Oahu, a Foursquare church in Hawaii.

At this time, it is absolutely essential for believers to stand in the victory that we have in Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. Victorious, the newest release from New Hope Oahu (Oahu South Foursquare Church) in Honolulu, sends a clear message of victory over the looming darkness and stirs a sense of hope and joy.

“We Live” opens the album with an upbeat and driving anthem that reminds us that our abundant life is born out of God’s love, grace and mercy. There is a sense of the incredible joy that can be found when our hope is found in Jesus Christ, and the natural response of praise that flows from our hearts.

“None Like You,” a powerful ballad with strains of the Islands, is a sincere cry of praise and adoration to our Lord. We stand in awe of His grace and love, bowing before His majesty, and find calm assurance that “no height or depth / no width or breadth / can separate us from Your love.”

The title track perfectly conveys the album’s theme with a compelling rhythm that stirs listeners to their feet. A strong battle cry, the lyrics resonate within the soul as we declare “we are victorious / glorious / let the church arise.” As the bride of Christ, when we stand and fight, we will be victorious!

Words cannot adequately describe how timely and poignant the message woven throughout Victorious is for the church today. This album is a powerful collection of music that can bring a sense of hope and joy to a believer’s heart. Each song reflects the Source of our victory and the truth that with God, all things are possible.

With the versatile style range that New Hope Oahu brings, this album is a great resource for both personal worship and corporate worship in multi-generational settings.
