In a despairing world looking for answers and real truth, Christians' proclamation of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus can bring hope and life to searching hearts. But to share that truth, we must believe it. Because We Believe, created by Marty Parks, is an Easter affirmation of our faith and calls us to rise and proclaim our beliefs with courage. Inspirational reader-response narrations begin with a declaration of truths about Christ and then walk through the crucifixion with stirring emotion. Accessible arrangements of both new and familiar Easter songs, including a powerhouse version of "The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power" and a thrilling "Behold He Comes" medley, encourage choir and congregation to embrace and celebrate the pivotal message of the gospel: Christ's sacrificial love for us. While not compromising on fullness of sound, this musical is ideal for smaller choirs or larger choirs with limited rehearsal time and delivers a powerful message without elaborate staging. The time has come. The time is now. Let's stand and share what we believe!
