On the evening of Sunday, March 9th 2008, thousands of worshippers gathered to fill the Acer Arena in Sydney as Hillsong Church recorded their latest live worship album.
It was an unforgettable night. An encounter with God that left the thousands who filled the stadium humbled and in awe of the wonder and grace of God and the reality of Christ.
We come together and we say, "This is who we are, God. We need
You, we love You, and we're going to give everything to You.
It's actually about the church coming together and singing with One Voice, One Passion, One Heart, giving all our praise to God" Said Joel Houston.
The church was truly united in heart and passion - and the breadth of the hillsong worship team was reflected as a number of new songwriters, worship leaders and musicians joined Darlene Zschech , Reuben Morgan, Joel Houston and Marty Sampson on the platform to capture the sound of the generations old and new together in worship and song.
It was a night of unified faith and expectancy, with moments all will never forget such as when Michael Gugliemucci, who has battled his own health crisis against cancer for two years, walked confidently on stage, oxygen tank in hand, declaring the promise of God and boldly
Singing the words to his song 'Healer'.
The evening culminated with a loud and victorious declaration of, 'With Everything' and a holy moment that all who experienced will remember. As the band left the stage and the name of Jesus on display, the people were not ready to leave and with little accompaniment, they broke into spontaneous song and continued to worship God.
