Aaron Clark is determined to help those in the local church and outside of it. It’s a large part of his music ministry.No Fear, All Faith is the group’s third recording and for its leader, it’s his most personal to date. Just orchestrating this live recording is a step of faith for the artist. He says, “My goal is for all believers to face our fears and to live more by faith. I have seen the spirit of fear cripple believers and non-believers alike. Fear is a monster and it’s one of the most powerful tools in Satan’s arsenal. So many are not happy with where they are and are feeling stuck all because of the spirit of fear. Fear is designed to keep you in a place where God is trying to pull you out of. Faith can release us from fear. I encourage believers to take the risk, step out and do what God has called them to do.”
The concept of moving past fear permeates the new record. Every song challenges the believer to shake off the negative emotion. “Victory Belongs To You” speaks of declaring the win in the face of fear. “Wait On You” will encourage those who are waiting on a promise from God not to succumb to fear. “The Stronghold Is Breaking” is powerful ballad that will help those break out of the walls of limitation. Clark’s purpose is to have the music and the lyrics inspire believers to trust God more. To complement the CD and DVD, the songwriter is penning a devotional. The book will focus on 7 fears that many struggle with and will release when the project releases. Currently, fans can purchase their own No Fear, All Faith merchandise on the group’s website.
