Josh Baldwin is an American songwriter and worship leader with Bethel Church and Bethel Music. His latest single "Let the redeemed" declares God as a Deliverer—the One who leads us out of the desert. Josh believes the most powerful sound on earth is the song of captives set free, and there is power in our testimony that releases hope to the world. Through his song “Let the Redeemed,” Josh invites listeners to turn their story into a song of thankfulness, allowing the hope that lives inside of us to permeate the world.
- Psalm 107:2 “Tell the world how he broke through and delivered you from the power of darkness.”
Josh joined the Bethel Music Collective in 2014 and regularly leads worship at Bethel Church and with Bethel Music Worship Nights tour domestically and internationally. In August 2015, he and his family made the cross-country move from North Carolina to Redding, California. Josh’s leadership creates an inviting atmosphere of celebration and his songs point to the trustworthy nature of God as Friend and Father.
His song “Praises” is featured on Bethel Music’s recent album Have it All (2016). In May 2017, Josh released his debut solo album with Bethel Music titled The War is Over. Josh’s greatest motivation as a worshipper and songwriter is the desire to connect with the Father’s heart and usher others into the presence of God. Both “Praises” and “You Deserve It All” (from his solo project Rivers), have become popular worship anthems among churches around the world.
There is much more to come from this creative, devoted leader. Josh and his wife Sheila enjoy adventuring, hosting, and raising their two amazing children in Redding, California.
