Faith + Hope + Love is the eighteenth album in the live praise and worship series of Christian Contemporary music by Hillsong Church. It was recorded live at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on March 29, 2009 by the Hillsong Live team with a crowd of over 12,000 worshippers.
Joel Houston was quoted saying:
“Beyond the sound, the rhythm, the art… beyond the strings, the keys, the melodies… beyond the stage, the set, the lights… are the PEOPLE. Ordinary men, women & children, from all walks of life, in all sorts of circumstances and each one with a unique story to tell. This is the Church… and this is Hillsong’s 18th Live praise and worship album ‘faith+hope+love’. EveryONE together playing their part and lending their voice to the collective story, OUR story. The prayer is that ‘Faith+Hope+Love’ will breathe the light, love and freedom of Christ into your life, and continue to give expression to what God is doing in and through PEOPLE all over the Earth.”[cite this quote]
