Best Modern Christian Music Artists

The Top Ten

Skillet Skillet is an American Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996 and based in the United States.

Great band. They get the message of God and Jesus across to people who find the other stuff boring. Love this band!

Skillet is the best band of ALL time...! No comparison to any other band this is definitely the BEST..! and to tell you the truth I never really like "god" music but this band got me into it

Without Skillet, I wouldn't be saved. It's easy to mistake them for a secular band, and when you find out they're Christian, it blows your mind, and you see a new perspective on everything

I love Skillets songs it helps me think of how I can help to make our home a better place. All those people who pressed dislike on Skillets videos thought it said dis-i-like!

TobyMac Toby McKeehan, better known by his stage name TobyMac, is a Christian hip hop recording artist, music producer, hip-hop and pop artist, songwriter and author.

The best rapper/singer in the Christian world! He does songs with some of the best, too. He can do fun music, sad music, happy music, worship music, relationship music, soft music, rock music, rap music, and more! He is the complete package in Christian Singers.

If anybody can make rap and Christian songs, it is definitely TobyMac. He is sch a good songwriter, and he has a great voice.

I have heard Athiests tell me that christians have the worst songs ever and then say that their songs were the best (if I were them, I wouldn't brag about songs like "california girls", those are terrible songs), then I have them listen to songs by tobymac and then they take back what they said about christian songs being terrible (sorry if I spelled words wrong, I am not the best speller in the world.)

He is the awesome at singer ever. I love his music. It sounds like any contemporary song except it packs a powerful message all throughout it. He is by far one of the greatest christian singers of all time. Rock on toby Mac

Chris Tomlin

wow!.. everytime I'll listen to his worshiping songs, I felt my spirit is filled with holiness through God.
This artist is very awesome..!

Chris Tomlin songs aren't loud or have dynamic instrumentals, but hold this quiet strength that gives hope through God-praising lyrics and soft melody. It's one of those songs that catch you off guard and have a impact on your day.

I don't think I have heard a song that I haven't liked by Chris Tomlin. I love listening to his music. I love the words to his music. His songs all sound different, he's just one talented artist. God gave him a gift and he is using it. Had my sister (who doesn't listen to Christian music) listen to one song of his and now she is hooked.

Chris Tomlin's music is full of worship and praise to Jesus, Chris himself has remained extremely humble despite his worldwide recognition. He is truly a wonderful example of Proverbs 29:23- "A man's pride will bring him low, but the humble in spirit will retain honor." (NKJV) He is definitely my favorite Christian artists, not just because of his great music but because he is an extremely genuine and humble person who strives to spread the love of Jesus to others.

Jeremy Camp

Talk about feeling Gods presence in his music. The Way is the best song ever.

He is a great singer and has a beautiful voice!

Jeremy Camp is incredible! His songs are the perfect mix of Christian, rock, and pop. I especially love: "The Way", "There will be a day" and "Overcome". Jeremy Camp is the best singer

"The Way" is awesome song, Chris Tomlin and Jeremy Camp far ahead of competition.

Red Red is an American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee, formed in 2002 by brothers guitarist Anthony Armstrong and bassist Randy Armstrong, with lead vocalist Michael Barnes.

Wow! Just Wow! I can't believe Red is at number 8. They Should be in the top 3. Before you vote for Skillet or Tobymac go listen to these songs by Red, Breathe Into Me, Ordinary World, Mystery Of You, Never Be the Same, Not Alone, Feed The Machine, and Faceless.

RED should be NUMBER ONE. Way better then Switchfoot, Newsboys, Casting crown and Skillet. Christ Tomlin can compete. But RED is NUMBER ONE. Even non Christian band... NUMBER ONE -:O Praise GOD and GOD bless.

Meaningful songs describing the love of Christ

They are the best Christian artists ever

Colton Dixon Michael Colton Dixon is an American Christian singer-songwriter and musician from Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He placed seventh on the eleventh season of American Idol.

I've never been much of a Christian music lover, but the first time I heard Colton Dixon's 'More of you Less of me & Fool's Gold' I was instantly hooked. His albums have quite a secular sound and his songs are very spiritual and thought provoking. I own both of his albums A Messenger & Anchor and listen to them all the time! If you've never listened to his music, do it, you won't regret it!

My daughter, Leah, is fifteen and loves his music. She is hoping for a Pittsburgh concert at some point. It is awesome to see your teen desire to listen to music with lyrics to edify and speak of life. Colton and his wife are positive role models in which a generation can look up to. Thank you.

He rocked American Idol, and he chose the Christian path of music which is inspiring! His music is radio type music but with godly lyrics!

Never Gone is awesome.

Phil Wickham

I think he should be at the top!

He has one of the best voices man he sing!

I agree. LOVE Phil Wickham.

he is good

Casting Crowns Casting Crowns is a contemporary Christian and Christian rock band started in 1999 by youth pastor Mark Hall, who serves as the band's lead vocalist, as part of a youth group at First Baptist Church in Downtown Daytona Beach, Florida.

Only Jesus, Oh My Soul, Who Am I, Until the Whole World Hears, Thrive, Praise You in this Storm, the list goes on...

They should be number 1, my wife and I have all of your music that we can find. Keep them coming CC.

Because his songs makes me Alive and he is a good singer.
May God bless them!

Praise you in this storm heart touching song


Newsboys are such a great band. They live and breath God's love, and it definitely is shown through their music.

In Christ Alone... Amazing song. They are really really great. I love the newsboys. Their songs are astoundingly moving. They easily deserve top three

So close between this and MercyMe, but the tipping point goes to Newsboys' VAST number of hits. God's Not Dead, Live With Abandon, He Reigns, and my personal favorite, Your Love Never Fails, just to name a few.

He Reigns was an inspiration to me and its this band I must thank for helping me get my life straight

Flyleaf Flyleaf is an American rock band formed in Bell County, Texas, in 2002. The band has charted on mainstream rock, Christian pop and Christian metal genres.

The Contenders

Icon For Hire
Natalie Grant

She writes some of the most inspirational songs

She has one of the most amazing and versatile voices I've ever heard.

Has an amazing voice!

She is the best!

Demon Hunter Demon Hunter is an American Christian metal band from Seattle, Washington, started in 2000 by brothers Don Clark and Ryan Clark. Although the brothers created the band together, only Ryan remains, since Don left the band to take care of his family.

Demon Hunter- Best Christian metal band out there. Highly suggested for a metal head. They sound very much like Five Finger Death Punch and others.

One Of The Most Heaviest Christian bands ever!

Britt Nicole Brittany Nicole Waddell, better known by her stage name Britt Nicole, is an American vocalist, songwriter and recording artist.

Britt Nicole has such a great voice. "Gold" is one of my all time favorites. You are an encouragment, Britt Nicole!

I love Britt Nicole! She has inspired me so much and many others going through hard times. I love her and what to meet her!

I love her music fashion designer many other Britt Nicole was beautiful voices singing skills.

She has an amazing voice.

Jesus Culture

Some of their music is good, but the church they come from believes some pretty heretical things, I don't listen to their music anymore and if I do I listen to someone else sing their songs not them singing, I just can't enjoy music sung by heretics.

Some of the most visceral Christian around

They have really beautiful songs like "You won't relent" - it's simply amazing; "Light of Your face", "Holy" and so many more.

I only listen to praise and worship music so I enjoy Jesus Culture. Great worship music that I totally blast in my car. One of my favorite artists to listen to.

Kutless Kutless is a Christian rock band from Portland, Oregon formed in 1999. Since their formation, they have released multiple studio albums and one live album, Live from Portland.

Kutless is by far the best Christian band! There music is incredible!

Ashes Remain

Love this group!

Lecrae Lecrae Devaughn Moore, mononymously known as Lecrae, is an American Christian hip hop artist, songwriter, record producer and actor. He is also the co-founder of reach records.

Lecrae's songs can easily equal, or even beat songs by secular music's top artists. Because I am a die hard rap fan, there is no question in my mind that Lecrae is not only the best Christian artist, but the best artist there is today. With his powerful lyrics and strong, energetic beats, Lecrae should definitely be the top on this list.

At first glance lecrae can seem like just a artist who does "fun" Christian music and he's just kind of shallow and its not very deep Christian music. WRONG BROTHUH! Lecrae frequently exposes the secularism of mainstream rap music (one example is in his song, NUTHIN) and actually has very deep meaning to all of his lyrics. He has a pretty interesting testimony about how he used to be a drug addict and a gang member and stuff like that which he frequently references in his songs, which lets him relate to unsaved people more than any Christian artist,which eventually draws them to God once they actually hear what he's saying. Even if you don't care about all that, he still makes catchy, quality beats and flows that are a safe alternative to secular rap music. Sorta like the way "trunk or treat" is a safe alternative to Halloween. If your a newcomer I would reccomend your first song to listen to would be don't WAIST YOUR LIFE. Awesome singing and rapping and a very relevent message. Then ...more

He's obviously the best rapper, he was rated this by many different websites. He has good songs like background, joyful noise and Don't waste your life. He has good beats and his raps are solid, even my non-Christian friends like him.

Lecrae has allowed me to not be that stereotypical Christian listening to "hymns" all day. I show this music to my friends and they are like, "Whoa. How is that even Christian? " The meanings of the songs are deep too, and are tied in amazingly with the beats and rapping. LOVE HIM

Thousand Foot Krutch Thousand Foot Krutch is a Canadian Christian rock band formed in 1995. They have released eight albums. They have also released two live albums and three remix albums.

"be somebody" enough said

Absolutly awesome!



These men have such a *glorious* way of, sharing God's Word with all that hear their profound music! I, truly, admire how dedicated that, all of these men are in, walking in Christ's footsteps...

Songs like "I Can Only Imagine" and "Word of God Speak, " indeed -- speak for themselves.

Wrote and Performed the #1 Song of the decade, Word of God Speak. They perform powerful, great, amazing songs.

No wonder they made I can only imagine into a movie. The song is just gorgeous.

Matthew West

This man's music started me following the lord. Scanning the radio stations one day and herd next thing you know. That's been at least 13 years ago.

I really like his music just recently started to listen to songs that I hadn't heard of his he is so inspiring listen to the song tryin of his

Matthew west changes peoples lives all over the world and I am one of those people, he is my favorite singer and I vote him for top ten.
I love Matthew west!

Matthew west is awesome he deserves higher then 14

For King and Country

For King and Country's songs are super encouraging, and they have great voices. There new song " Together" is one of my all time favorites. Keep up the good work, For King and Country!

I really can't believe it's a indie Christian band #forkingandcountry

They write those songs that no matter what's wrong or no matter what is happening in your life you can stop for a minute and enjoy their music and connect you to God, even if it only lasts untill another song comes on. They have a wonderful voice to voice the wonderful message through music.

These guys deserve to be first! They are the best group of all time. Their lyrics are amazing, their music is awesome and their concerts are mind-blowing! Their song "Priceless" has to be one of the best songs of all time and the message they are trying to get out through it is very admirable.

NF Nathan "Nate" John Feuerstein, whose stage name is NF, is an American Christian hip hop rapper, singer and musician from Gladwin, Michigan.

NF is the most inspirational singer/rapper, not just in Christian music, but in all music! Go check him out!

He is definitely beyond spiritually gifted. He. Is. Amazing. We need more music like his, real and raw stuff we all go through in life.

Arguably the best rapper on the planet Christian and non-Christian.

Nf is an amazing person and musician with very thoughtful lyrics

Jamie Grace

I just listened to one of her song and it is awesome! I love it once I heard it! It really cool! You guys really gotta try to listen to her songs

Awesome artist from holding on and you lead, I made my friends listen to her without knowing its Christian music haha. Love her

Anyone who listens to Jamie would Love her! GOD BLESS JAMIE GRACE

She is a very good singer with a very good voice

Anthem Lights

I love EVERY song on their album. (that doesn't happen often)

The group's style is incredible--they're able to harmonize effortlessly, and they're covers of secular pop artists are just plain ol' awesome! They all possess some of the best male vocals I have ever heard, especially the newcomer Spencer Kane.

I just Can't Shut Up about their songs! They're so good!

Great group with epic talent, but more importantly they have solid words!
I can see them moving up the list.
