The award-winning Christian band MercyMe has once again topped the Christian music charts with their 19th number-one single.
The song “To Not Worship You” took the No.1 spot on Billboard's Christian Airplay and Christian AC Airplay charts on Sept. 16, Billboard reports. The song follows MercyMe’s “Then Christ Came,” which topped both lists in February of this year.
The group, which formed in 1994, received its first Christian Airplay and Christian AC Airplay No. 1 in 2003 with 'Word of God Speak'. At the time, the song led both charts for 23 and 21 weeks, respectively.
