The trio released their self titled debut album in 1989, which gave them a solid launching pad as reviews were favorable.

The group released their first certified gold album Nu Thang in 1990. They followed their successful album with another hit album, the certified platinum Free at Last. Their supporting tour for the album was a huge success for the group and they started getting mainstream attention, playing on live television shows like the Jay Leno show.

Now that they were established, DC Talk had more freedom to experiment with their music. They released their first single from their upcoming album Jesus Freak, and it was a huge hit. The album went multi platinum, and led to the hugely successful and popular Jesus Freak World Tour. The group recorded their last album Supernatural, in 1998, which also went on to be certified platinum.
