We are use to gathering at church and giving encouragement, inspiration, and the message of the gospel to the believers, but we often forget about the individuals outside of church that needs to hear the good news to.” Cline continued with “I feel that God is calling me to share humor, inspiration, and of course the message of hope in Christ to people that need it the most, the unbeliever.” With this being said, Cline has focused his music on not only the church, but those who would never set foot in the churchouse, the ones that need the message of Christ but is often forgotten about.
