ChristianRock.Net is an internet only Christian rock radio station based in Springfield, Missouri, United States. It started in 1998, and is one of four 24/7 Christian rock stations in the country (alongside RadioU and BrokenFM).

The site plays numerous singles from Christian rock artists, posting a weekly top 30 and an annual top 100.[2] The site often announced upcoming album releases, and has a database of all Christian radio singles by every band they play. They also announce concerts[3] and put up lyrics from various songs.

The site has recently expanded with new stations, including Christian hard rock, Christian hip hop, and Christian power praise. The website plays rock music streamed via RealPlayer, Winamp, and Windows Media Player. And in the fall of 2013 they relapsed their Christian hip hop station with a Christian classic rock one. Following this they created a new programme supporting up and coming dreamers with the passion and belief, that they are to perform on stage in front of the lost and broken to preach the word of God through many kinds of rock and metal music. From vocals (of different techniques), singing/screaming professionally, guitarists, bassists, drummers, and even synth to keyboard players. This endeavor created two bands in which are now touring the U.S. and Europe. The programme will be taking place again in 2014 if supporters fund once again for this hopeful and productive scheme. Praying is encouraged when a new or reoccurring opportunity arrives. A very passionate, generous and holy ministry.

The site was named the best Internet Radio Network at the Fifth Annual American Christian Music Awards on October 15, 2005.[4]
