  1. Every song from Rev. FC Barnes
    was a powerful sermon that
    impacted my life. I wish
    I knew him personally.
    Obviously he had a
    super strong love
    for JESUS. ❤️


  2. That is truly a miss to me I the Bahamas. I think I have most of the family’s recordings. Im still trying to find a recording by Deborah Barnes a niec.e called TRUTH


  3. I’ve been playing FC Barnes music for many years in the church choir. The music is traditional and inspiration at the same. My favorite is “I’m Getting Ready to Go”, trying to teach the choir for this Sunday. Many blessings to his family as well as his son, Luther.
    “It’s your time” (favorite)


  4. What a meek & bold soldier for The Lord. I love his music especially with his three nieces. I can see Christ in Bishop FC Barnes. Just watching & hearing him in video bless me tremendously. All Glory to God in Jesus name.


  5. The messages in this brother’s songs is Holy Ghost anointed. God used this man to minister to the soul of his people, we love you bro Barnes


  6. F.C. Barnes was a symbol – an illustration of God’s love. I saw him in August of this year at my cousin Sarah Johnson’s concert. In all my years of living and hearing of F.C. Barnes, I listened to his music, but never saw him. I’m glad God blessed me that day to lay eyes on him. He is where we wanted go – in a land where every soul is free. I know many years from now, his family will miss him – and many others, but know that if you live your life the way he lived his, you will see him again one day. Be blessed, be good and be free.

  7. I met Rev FC Barnes years ago when I went to a concert while still living in Jamaica. I love all his songs. But I love coming up on the rough side, Jesus cares, every prayer shall find its answer, when it rains, she stood right there at the foot of the cross. I love all his songs. God bless his soul


  8. Years ago my ex-husband who was a sea man brought me a CD of Rev.F.C.Barnes to a tiny island in the caribbean called St. Vincent and the Grenadines never knew him, never heard of him, but his music blessed me in a very special way for may years,and now that I’ve migrated to the United States I listen to him on Utube. I love all his sounds but We pray and God delivers was my favourite. This morning I decided to post on of his songs on FB which I did, then I came across his passing. My depest condolence to his family, he was truly a blessing to me and my family, please find comfort in knowing To be absent from the body is tobe present with the Lord. May his soul rest in the arms of Jesus.



    I was born in Nashville,NC and my family moved to Washington DC when I was a small child. I can remember the first time hearing ‘ROUGH SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN” and it was the most beautiful song I had ever heard. I think the entire population of the Metro area loved it also, because it was playing just about any place you went. May God continue to bless the Barne’s family and my prayers are with all of you. Peace be with you.
