The Encyclopedia of Contemporary Christian Music defines Contemporary Christian music (CCM) as "music that appeals to self-identified fans of contemporary Christian music on account of a perceived connection to what they regard as Christianity". Based on that definition, this list includes artists who work in the Christian music industry as well as artists in the general market whose lyrics reflect their Christian faith or where members are identified (either self-identified or by a reliable source) as Christians. A band's own desire to be considered as part of the genre does not come into consideration.
