A Mighty Fortress: A Celebration of Foundational Truths (EP) (1986)

Updated: Jun 19


A Mighty Fortress: A Celebration of Foundational Truths is a musical project extended play (EP) created by Christian singer Steve Green. It was released in early 1986 on Sparrow Records' Birdwing label.


Based on the Martin Luther church hymn "A Mighty Fortress is Our God," the cantada features songs that deal with the emphasis of worshiping God in awe and reverence. Green arranged the songs with producer Greg Nelson and Green co-wrote the original songs with songwriters Niles Borop and Dwight Liles with additional music and lyrics by Nelson and Gary McSpaddon on the song "Jesus Lord to Me" and features Green, Jon Mohr and Linda Dove as soloists with narration by Dr. Millard Reed, who was the pastor of the First Church of the Nazarene in Nashville, Tennessee.


Green won a Dove Award for Musical Album of the Year for A Mighty Fortress at the 18th GMA Dove Awards. The EP has long since been out of print. You can listen to the full-length cantada from the YouTube link posted below this article.
