Christian music is religious music that is written to express either personal or a communal belief regarding Christian life. Common themes of Christian music include praise, worship, penitence and lament.

Like other forms of music the creation, performance, significance, and even the definition of Christian music varies according to culture and social context. Christian music is composed and performed for many purposes, ranging from aesthetic pleasure, religious or ceremonial purposes, or as an entertainment product for the marketplace.
