"Whether we admit it or not, we are all a slave to something (desires, fame, money, relationships, etc.). We are slaves to whatever it is that we live for. Being a slave to anything but Christ is hopeless. When we completely surrender ourselves and live for Him, we become captivated by His love for us. When we experience the love of Christ we have no choice but to be captured by Him."
This is not just a quote that you will find inside the Chris Allen Band's cd cover; it is their mission statement. The Chris Allen Band is a contemporary Christian praise and worship band from La Porte, Texas which is in the Houston area. The band consists of Chris Allen (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Chris Shippey (drums), and Cordy Raney (lead guitar). The goal of the Chris Allen Band is to always put Jesus Christ first in their lives and in their ministry.
Their new cd, "Captured", contains original songs that express the heart of the Chris Allen Band. Through their music, they worship and exalt God. They pray that when someone hears their music that you feel like you have been in the presence of the Lord. The hope of the Chris Allen Band is that people will not leave one of their performances in "love" with the band but more in "LOVE" with Jesus Christ than when they came. The reason that the Chris Allen Band writes and plays music is in the desire that through their songs, live or on a cd; that people will grow a passion to live for God and share His love with others.
