AllMusic Review by

Minister Timothy Britten raises a serious ruckus in the name of the Lord. From the church-tent-revival vibe of the title track, which kicks off this set to great effect, to the disco-fueled beat of "I Got the Victory" to the stirring piano-and-vocal duet "In Excelsis Deo," Britten and company give exuberant, heartfelt testimony to the power of their faith.

There are some contemporary R&B and soul touches here, like the smooth surge on "Jesus, We Praise Your Name," but the hair-raising power of the full choir on nearly every track keeps this from ever being confused with commercial pop. The secret weapon of CAN'T NOBODY DO ME LIKE JESUS is alto extraordinaire DeNetria Champ, whose powerful pipes are showcased on three tracks. The music reaches right down to the soul with a yearning and joy that can only come from utter faith and conviction.
